In the vein of such coming-of-age classics as Francois Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, the 1977 comedy-drama Peppermint Soda captures a particular moment in the tumultuous life and development of two young people. Anne (Eléonore Klarwein) and Frederique (Odile Michel) are teenage sisters 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.
