  1. bucharestaesthetics's rating of the film Persepolis

    Anim’est 12 Captivating blend between the Iran-Iraq War & Iranian Revolution events and the effects they had on the personal lives of local inhabitants, coherent and easy-to-follow journey to maturation of the protagonist, apparently simple but well-constructed animation. Flaws would be the graphic symbolism and war-driven imagery, which are thrown into the film using an “in your face” technique, way too obviously.

  3. Alex Pintică's rating of the film Persepolis

    The pacing, although perfect for the graphic novel, didn't work for the movie.

  5. surgery-ethic's rating of the film Persepolis

    "You'll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it's because they're stupid. Don't react to their cruelty. There's nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself."

  10. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Persepolis

    If you're a fan of the graphic novel you can't expect much more from a screen adaptation. It's just like on paper, the only difference being it moves.

  15. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Persepolis

    The final act drags longer than I'd like. It feels like it needs to wrap up with Marjane being depressed and overcoming it but regardless it's a great coming of age story among a revolution with a pleasing comic book B & W art style. The political side didn't hit me that much, 'Waltz with Bashir' had a more thought provoking aspect but seeing the change in a country from one perspective is still food for thought.

  16. Ana Sousa's rating of the film Persepolis

    Loved how different the movie and the book made me feel, even tough the adaptation is as faithful as could be. Also, I watched it while traveling so it brought a whole other meaning to it, as Marjane constantly moves from city to city, from house to house. I felt that the word "home" meant nothing to her, by the end of it. I hope I never feel like that ever.

  20. Emrys's rating of the film Persepolis

    Watched this with my 13-year-old Canadian (politically-minded) daughters, and it made for perfect family night. Couldn't be a better movie for our family (as an audience).

  23. Joana Carolina's rating of the film Persepolis

    the perfect portrait of opression.

  24. Adèle Vivet's rating of the film Persepolis

    L'animation comme le scénario de Persepolis sont incroyables, mais les bandes dessinées en disent tellement que l'adaptation des cinq tomes en 1h30 me laisse presque sur ma faim...
