    I simply loved this movie, the main character and her somewhat intense life. Its both adorable and freaking cruel, with the minimalistic animations its just one of few masterpieces in animated world.

    Should have been nominated as best picture of 2007. Persepolis is the autobiography of Marjane Satrapi's life as an Iranian girl during the height of the Islamic Revolution. With a great premise, a great setting, great actors and an amazing amount of intelligent idealism, Persepolis must've swept the Oscars.

    The movie had hearty and relatable characters, characters that are very hard to
    find in the movies of today. And the dialog between the characters was as if they hired their writers from the New You've got very intelligent and clever dialog, most quotes might last with you forever. The movie's script and plot was completely flawless.

    A message for the parents, it may look like a "cute" cartoon, but keep your kid away from this one until they are at least 14. Unless you want to be answering their questions halfway through the movie. That doesn't make it a bad movie.

    It's not to be missed in any language. In a year that has given us such marvelous animated movies as "Ratatouille" and "Paprika," this vibrant, sly and moving personal odyssey takes pride of place.

    There is no denying the boldness of Persepolis, both in design and in moral complaint, but there must surely be moments, in Marjane’s life as in ours, that cry out for cross-hatching and the grown-up grayness of doubt.

    This autobiographical tour de force is completely accessible and art of a very high order.
