  1. Shahin Katila's rating of the film Persepolis

  2. Robert H's rating of the film Persepolis

    What a gem. Charming, unsympathetic, tender, and laugh-out-loud funny. The animation uses wonderfully clever transitions and its art style compliments the humour - the cutaway segments were great - from wine making in a bathtab with the woman repeating "God forgive me" to the first metal/thrash concert experience. It took a while to understand how old the protagonist was in places but what a great perspective.

  3. JanP's rating of the film Persepolis

    Both complex and charming. So many innocent lives have been distorted and destroyed by western interference.

  4. Mike's rating of the film Persepolis

    Wow I don’t normally enjoy animated adaptations but this blew me away. So poignant and the ending really tugged at my heart strings

  5. Rachael's rating of the film Persepolis

    Utterly superb. Had me gripped from start to finish.

  6. Inteleter's rating of the film Persepolis

    Liked this quite a lot. Animation, visuals and voice performances are all very good and the story was quite interesting. Overall very good.

  7. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Persepolis

    Likeable and often moving autobiographical tale, somewhat undermined by cuteness and naivety (a rendition of 'Eye of the Tiger' is cause for particular regret). I'm not convinced by the animation; visually, it's beautiful from frame to frame, but there's no flow, so that it seems like the pages of a picture book being turned.

  9. Michele Maria Serrapica's rating of the film Persepolis

  10. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Persepolis

    Wonderful film - highly relevant to today's young Muslims seeking their identity in a more Westernized world.

  11. mark's rating of the film Persepolis

    Yet another great and deeply humane film from Iran; critical in equal measure of the broad range of political, ideological and religious dogma that increasingly appear to define national and regional identity over recent decades, in spite of the lessons of the 20th century. Intelligent, thoughtful and sensitive film making of the highest calibre, and as such, a great source of hope. Inspiring.

  12. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Persepolis

    Enjoyable animated fare that shows the turbulent life of a young Iranian girl as she finds herself, finds out more about tales from her family, and develops a core of feminism and inner strength that will serve her well as she ventures further and further away from home.

  13. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Persepolis

  14. alfredodimalo's rating of the film Persepolis

  15. Bee Garns's rating of the film Persepolis

    Brilliant, moving and very engaging. Who ever said that animation is just for kids?

  16. Kenzozo's rating of the film Persepolis

    Very clear and simple shown political scene and woman's place and role at the same, which there is none at that time. Strongly hedonistic through eyes of a girl who grew up with elder population through fundamentalist islamic state, which did not stop to succeed to become a lady which loves herself the way grandma always wanted for her. Cinema and family values at its finest. 5.0

  17. r u f o's rating of the film Persepolis

  18. Silvoieski's rating of the film Persepolis

    It made me go research further into the history of the Iranian revolution, otherwise it is a normal teenage story.

  19. Jonathan Pr's rating of the film Persepolis

  20. Masha's rating of the film Persepolis

  21. dAlton Anthony's rating of the film Persepolis

    Haven't seen this film since its release but I remember being quite moved and struck by the fact that it offered a stern political critique and gender analysis without sinking into the "hate this regime because it oppressed me" syndrome. In other words, I didn't feel like emoting with the characters would make me complicit in U.S. foreign policy.

  22. Hermann A. RG's rating of the film Persepolis
