Persepolis (2007) Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud
Persepolis is a French-Iranian animated film written and directed by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud. It is based on Satrapi’s autobiographical graphic novel of the same name and depicts her childhood and young adulthood in Tehran and Vienna against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. Persepolis beautifully balances political and personal issues, historical events and everyday occurrences, poignancy and humor. In addition the mainly black and white cartoonish animation with manga features fits like a glove.
