Synopsis:
Based upon the graphic novels of Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis is the biographical story following the poignant and often hilarious adventures of Marji. From a rebellious, heavy metal loving tomboy experiencing the turmoil of adolescence during the tyrannical, Iranian revolution to a teenage exile in Vienna, Austria, where she discovers the benefits of freedom can be just as shocking as the repressive regime she was forced to leave behind. Returning to Iran as an alienated adult, Marji must now decide where it is her heart and her home must lay in this complex, insightful, honest and touching story, making Persepolis one of the most sublime animated feature films you're likely to experience.

Black N White - Persepolis review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
09/10/2008

Unique biographical animation, which brings home some of the realities facing those living under the Iran system.

I really enjoyed the visuals on offer, a real change after the realism of WALL-E and just a effective in delivering the storyline. At times the film does lose its way somewhat, in particular when we leave Iran. However its well worth checking out.
