Persepolis (2007)


Directed by Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi
95 minutes, France
Fiction

Description:

Persepolis is the much-anticipated animated adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's acclaimed series of autobiographical graphic novels. Satrapi's darkly humorous take on her experiences as a spirited young Muslim woman coming of age in Tehran - during the rule of the Shah, the Islamic Revolution and the gruelling Iran-Iraq War - makes for a bracingly original story.
