"Persepolis" (2007)

The animated biography of Marjane Satrapi. Based on her graphic novels about growing up in Iran during the overthrow of the Shah.

The black and white art looks like a combination of wood cuts and intricate traditional Persian art.

This is a wonderful insight into Iranian culture and history. She really catches the child's view of events.

I went out and picked up the graphic novel to get a more detailed version of the story.

I highly recommend this movie.

I want to pick up the graphic novel and then watch the film to see how it was adapted. One of my friends has a copy of the movie, so it's on our upcoming movie schedule. :-)
