for persepolis

★★★★★ “Persepolis is one of the most thoughtful, poignant and original films I have ever seen” IMDB

WAR. REVOLUTION, FAMILY, PUNK ROCK. ALL PART OF GROWING UP.

★★★★ The monochrome animation is stark and beautiful, and Marjane’s an appealing narrator. Often hilarious, sometimes tragic, this may be low-tech, but it’s high-class. Empire

Persepolis is a 2007 French-American- Iranian animated biographical film based on Marjane Satrapi’s autobiographcal graphic novel of the same name .  The story follows a young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution .Marjane is precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl who was nine years old during the Islamic Revolution when the fundamentalists first take power–forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands.

She cleverly outsmarts the “social guardians” and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden, while living with the terror of government persecution and the Iran/Iraq war.

★★★★★ Persepolis is an emotionally powerful, dramatically enthralling autobiographical gem, and the film’s simple black-and-white images are effective and bold. Rotten Tomatoes

The film was written and directed by Satrapi with Vincent Paronnaud.

With the voices of Chiara Mastroianni, Iggy Pop, Catherine Deneuve, Sean Penn, Gena Rowlands
