“It might seem that her story is too large for one 98-minute film, but “Persepolis” tells it carefully, lovingly, and with great style.” Roger Ebert
Based on Satrapi’s graphic novel about her life in pre and post-revolutionary Iran, and then in Europe. Nominated for an Academy Award, the film traces Satrapi’s growth from childhood to rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran. In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the disastrous Iran/Iraq war.
Dir. Marjane Satrapi, Vincent Parronnaud. 2007. 96 min.
