The film Persepolis looks quite intriguing, and the reviews I've read are thumbs up. Anyone seen it?
I'd recommend seeing it at least once. It wasn't 100% what I thought it was going to be, and in the end I was just a tad bit disappointed with the ending, but still totally glad i went and saw it.
I did. It's a wonderful film, not only for what it tells, but the images as well, superimposed 2D graphic animations that give a beautiful depth to the image. All surrounded by a memorable soundtrack and a script that combines humour with the harshness of a story about dictatorship and chauvinsim thru a kid's eyes. Deserved the Oscar.
I recommend reading the book first and then going. There are some lovely nods to the days of silent, puppet & paper cut-out animation (like "Prince Achmed"). Enjoy!
i agree with rebecca. the graphic novel is really amazing.
I saw it with a friend. We both enjoyed it very much. Do not miss it!
The book is waiting for me at the library - can't wait to read and then watch.
The books are amazing. Such a unique way to tell her story. I haven't seen the movie yet, but plan to soon.
Wow. I definitely want to see this - maybe I'll read the book first.
This animation is about my country... you can't imagine how I felt watching this... I could touch it under my skin... so great...so real...(thanks for sharing)
Book is AWESOME!
I really appreciate your thoughts and ideas, thanks for reading!
