Marjane Satrapi & Vinent Paronnaud
★★★★ out of 5
What a wonderfully animated, and very personal story. Based off a graphic novel by one of the directors, it’s a story that spans over the course of revolutions, maturing, and learning to be comfortable with your culture. The art style reminded me of another French film I enjoyed called Peur[s] du noir, and I found it really beautiful for the story Marjane was telling. Heartbreaking moments, the loss of an identity, and just the pains of grown up really made this a wonderful film for me to watch.
