Saw this film about a month ago was really impressed, so I decided to buy it for my girlfriends birthday.
Pink_kitty's Review of 'Persepolis'
Persepolis is beautifully animated and flows really gracefully. Marjane's character is very loveable and your heart breaks watching her go thru such an upheaval in her childhood. This story takes you thru the Islamic revolution in Iran, and tells of a family torn apart by the violence and stress. The animation really captures your interest and, at times, is very funny. The black and white emphasise the fear and tension in Iran well, and keep you focused on the storyline. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys foreign, animated films. If you have a heart, you will cry all the way thru like me tho!!!
Powerful sad lively young historical interesting artistic unusual Iranian French American Christian Muslim animated film. Watch it!
