Persepolis - A film by Marjane Satrapi & Vincent Paronnaud
"... this autobiographical tour de force is completely accessible and art of a very high order."
Lise Nesselson, VARIETY
"For me, the movie is better than the book."
Marjane Satrapi, PERSEPOLIS AUTHOR
"A funny, sometimes dark, always affecting story of surviving the worst through a sense of humor."
Richard Corliss, TIME MAGAZINE
"Among the most original and moving films at Cannes this year, marked by a highly expressive and varied drawing style and the sense of a plucky young woman navigating the turbulent currents of politics, family and adolescence."
Scott Foundas, L.A. WEEKLY
The poignant story of a young girl coming-of-age in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.Clever and fearless, she outsmarts the "social guardians" and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden. Yet when her uncle is senselessly executed and as bombs fall around Tehran in the Iran/Iraq war, the daily fear that permeates life in Iran is palpable.
