Where else has this film played?
Film Summary A young woman’s life in Iran after the 1978 revolution, via an animated film based on the wonderful graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi. It’s a French production featuring the voices of Chiara Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve and Danielle Darrieux.
Satrapi directed with Vincent Paronnaud.“Among the most original and moving films at Cannes this year, marked by a highly expressive and varied drawing style and the sense of a plucky young woman navigating the turbulent currents of politics, family and adolescence.” (Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly)
“A funny, sometimes dark, always affecting story of surviving the worst through a sense of humor.” (Richard Corliss, Time)“Any stragglers still unconvinced that animation can be an exciting medium for both adults and kids will run out of arguments in the face of Persepolis.” (Lisa Nesselson, Variety)“This is a sturdily poetic movie, rendering in black-and-white a world where nothing ever is.” (Stephanie Zacharek,
“A fresh, moving, out-of-the-gate masterpiece -- a work of animation that manages to be artistically brilliant, politically rich, morally engaging and emotionally overwhelming.” (James Rocchi, Cinematical)A 2008 Independent Spirit Award nominee for Best Foreign Film.More information can be found at the sites below:

I saw this movie, Serendip. It's awesome. I enjoyed it very much, even though it did make me cry a few times.
