She has a secret connection with a mysterious client, is employed by an unhappy pregnant woman who is in love with her, and is the obsession of a jerky dj she's recently broken up with. Lots of cameos. Very intriguing story. Great score. I love it start to finish. A personal favourite.

The long pauses in between dialogue I was able to doze off in. Though it was a deep, meaningful storyline at the end of it all I felt like I just wanted to cry.

(kr) wrote: Gayle O'Brien (Amy Poehler), Becky St. Germaine (Parker Posey), and Judi Joskow (Rachel Dratch) were losers in college. Savouring the idea that one day they would be the well off ones with hot husbands that the cool kids wish they could be, instead they find themselves in their 30's and still losers. When Becky gets a job from her boss Senator Hartmann (Jane Lynch) to secretly watch her daughter Ashley (Amber Tamblyn) while she's at Spring Break, Gayle and Judi tag along. In the early 21st century, we saw the rise of what became known as the new Frat Pack. This was a group of guys who made comedies together and featured Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, and Vince Vaughn as the prominent members. Spring Breakdown seems like a jumping off point for a sort of female version of that former Frat Pack. As it would seem only natural that Tina Fey was intended to play the part of Becky St. Germaine, they pulled something similar to what Adam Sandler has done with his cronies with Kevin James taking the place of Chris Farley, here they replaced Fey with Parker Posey. So how does the female iteration of the Frat Pack fare? Not very well. Spring Breakdown seems partly like an homage to Revenge of the Nerds part 2, and for those of us who like Revenge of the Nerds, we know that the second movie isn't the one that you really want to pay homage too. The writing doesn't do much to flesh out the characters in any way that would make people feel for them any more than people would feel from the many caricatures you can find in an SNL skit. While the jokes might have looked good on paper, they would have been better served in a skit, rather than in a full length movie they can't sustain. The acting is serviceable, particularly from the always good Parker Posey, but the writing doesn't give any of the actresses much to lean on. Amy Poehler's character is nothing more than a walking amalgam of her many SNL characters lumped into one character. Rachel Dratch, a comedienne best known for Debbie Downer on SNL, is an actress best suited to skits and guest stints on TV shows. Even some of the smaller characters, such as Seth Meyers closeted William and Missi Pyle's Charlene, can wear on the nerves in there brief appearances in the film. There are some laugh out loud moments in the film, but more often you're laughing at the people in the movie for appearing in this mess. I can't recommend this movie, which to me is sad because I always enjoy Amy Poehler, Parker Posey, and Jane Lynch typically in anything they're appearing in. Unfortunately, this film is a fairly big miss.

Not only is she beautiful, she is mesmerizing to watch. The cinematography is exceptional. The colors are vivid and rich and sometimes cold. The many emotions in the film are accurately translated. The story itself is highly original and multi-layered. I've seen it several times. It makes me proud that it's a Canadian (Quebecois) film.
(ru) wrote: PEPPERMINT CANDY is an understated and seering character study of one man's journey through the ups and downs of life. The film starts off with our main character - Yongho looking angry and bitter. He is so upset he doesn't even properly acknowledge his friends whom he hasn't seen in years. On the verge of ending his life - we are taken back in time to see how he got to where he is today to answer the question: What happened to this man that has made him lose all hope and reason to live? The film could have taken a melodramatic turn but instead director Chang-Dong Lee has chosen to make a film where we learn what kindof man Yongho was. We are allowed to connect and understand this man rather than simply know what happened to him. We don't find out all the details of his failed marriage nor exactly how he lost his business rather much like CITIZEN KANE we are simply given glimpses of important moments in his life. We do find out that he wasn't always this bitter man. He was once this innocent youth, able to love and have dreams. However things did not turn out the way he had dreamed. The political climate of the time, his work as a policeman and the rigid nature of society did not allow him to attain true happiness. It changed him from a warm, caring man to a cold, distant person. Throughout the film Young Ho is constantly searching for happiness, he seems detached from others and repressed and cannot shake his past experiences - they haunt him wherever he went. He always brought up and tried to search for his first girlfriend named Sumin. She represented for him the long-lost youth he yearned for but knew he would never get back. I feel that PEPPERMINT CANDY is one of the best Korean films I have seen but also one of the best films about humanity.

Alt fles egentlig ganske trist, grtt og hplst gjennom store deler av filmen, og noen scener er ganske s voldelige og brutale. Men historien som fortelles er ganske brutal og trist, og den formidles egentlig p en utrolig fin mte. Chank-guk er forresten utrolig fet, p sin ganske forskrudde mte.
