Like many I was wowed by Marjane Satrapi’s remarkable graphic novel memoir Persepolis. The buzz on the animated version was impressive, but I was still dubious. Not any more though. I saw the movie today and it was extraordinary — had me in tears several times along the way. Satrapi has done an incredible job and I highly, highly, highly recommend it.

Here’s a trailer to give you a taste:

  1. I am planning on checking out this one over the weekend. Your positive recommendation means so much.


  2. Let me know what you think once you see it.


  3. Wow — that is stunning! I will certainly go see it in the theatre when it comes. It looks like the best animated film since Miyazaki’s last, and definitely for adults. Thank you, Monica.
