In the vein of such classic coming of age films as Francois Truffaut's The 400 Blows, Diane Kurys's Peppermint Soda captures a particular moment in the tumultuous life and development of young people. Anne (Eléonore Klarwein) and Frederique (Odile Michel) are sisters entering their teen years in 1963 France, torn between divorced parents and struggling with the confines of their strict school. Along the way, they undergo an awakening both political and romantic. Kurys's celebrated film revels in the comedy and tragedy of the seemingly mundane, weaving a complex tapestry of everyday existence that also touches on the universal. Cohen Film Collection is proud to present a new 2K restoration of this world cinema classic.
