Pepperminta by Pipilotti Rist( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A woman who lives in a joyous world of her own tries to share it with others in this visually inventive comedy from Swiss filmmaker Pipilotti Rist. Pepperminta (Ewelina Guzik) is a carefree young woman who described herself as "an anarchist of the imagination," and thinks it's her life mission to bringing color and texture to a flat, grey culture. Pepperminta's grandmother raised her to follow her own path in life, and as a grown up, she's set out to brighten the community around her. While Pepperminta's eccentricities include keeping both snails and strawberries as pets, she has a pair of colleagues who have joined her in her mission to turn the world day-glo -- Werwen (Sven Pippig), a chubby man who has unwittingly stolen Pepperminta's heart, and Edna (Sabine Timoteo), a footloose gal who has a passion for tulips. Pepperminta was the first feature film for director Rist, who had previously distinguished herself as a video artist; the film was an official selection at the 2009 Venice International Film Festival"--Rotten tomatoes WWW site, viewed January 5, 2017
