"A real feisty film more universal(and all the better)for being drawn. It would have lost universality if real people had been used. It's clear that in totalitarian regimes it's always the feminine comic spirit that is most subversive with its use of laughter and ridicule. The truth will out whatever ideology represses it. The drawings are based upon Satrapi's graphic novel where the personal is political.Autobiographical but not narcissistic which is it's real interest,with not a computer drawing in sight but with the warmth and imperfection of the hand-drawn which will long outlast any computer graphic.What comic exuberance even with its treatment of an out-of-touch God who Marji berates. I liked that scene where she tells her Gran she is divorcing and the Gran defuses the emotion saying "I thought somebody had died". She goes to Vienna and Paris witnessing nihilism,racism and the emptiness of 'love' returning home a more complex adult.The content-war and Islamic revolution-the biggest thing to happen since the fall of the Berlin wall (or even before it )towards the end of the twentieth century-is what makes the story translated into such a graphic medium so amazing."
