Our take

This acclaimed coming-of-age feature chronicles a young girl during the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Co-directed and adapted by Marjane Satrapi from her graphic autobiography into beautiful black-and-white animation, the film is voiced by mother-daughter duo Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve!
