Persepolis: B

Persepolis, originally uploaded by looking4poetry.

Scott, Heather, Isabel, and I saw Persepolis last weekend. It was very cute -- which is a little odd to say about story dealing with execution, war, depression, homelessness, and oppression. The story is Marjane Satrapi's memoir and ends somewhat abruptly, but Starpi has written a follow-up Persepolis 2 which will hopefully receive the same animation treatment (since it's unlikely I'll get around to reading a word book).

Oops. I posted the image before completing the post.

Yes, I did see it. Very cute and interesting. Watching three French-language films within a month makes me wish I took French instead of German.
