Our take

From the directors of Persepolis comes another enchanting film adaptation of a graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi. Starring Mathieu Amalric and Maria de Medeiros, it combines touches of imaginative animation, fanciful design, and colourful imagery to masterfully bring to life an eccentric love story.
