Fresh: Based on her own graphic novel, Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnauds film is a masterly work.

Just about as expected. In fact, I was prepared for worse experience while opting for it. It had too much in it that appealed me to stay away from it. But as usual, I couldn't ignore its high rating for ever (I did it for long, though). Of course, had it been a movie for kids, I might not have dared to go for it. A critically acclaimed animated autobiographical (give or take a little) flick that turned out to be no more than average for me.

Intimacy with the history of Iran, the Islamic Revolution through an animated autobiography by and of Marjane Satrapi, a witness to the oppression of civil and women rights in Iran. Persepolis is visually beautiful, and socially, culturally, and politically reflective. Significant.
