The Best Movie You're Not Watching
Posted by: OrGaNiX from: on
For those of you unfamiliar with Persepolis I'll save you the trouble of reading the description: long story short Persepolis follows the life of a young Iranian girl growing up in a rapidly changing country. My opinion of the film? It's amazing. The graphic novel was a nice breath of fresh air in a medium that is generally stuck telling superhero stories. Persepolis is so good in fact that it ranks with other great works such as Maus, or the manga Buddha. It's just that good.
The movie itself looks a good bit like a black and white graphic novel, something I usually don't like. But the film is just so charming, so moving, so amazing on so many levels that the visual style matches perfectly the subject matter being handled here. I was skeptical about the visual quality of a black and white animated feature in high def, but it truly looks fantastic. After watching this several times I just can't believe how beautiful it looks, definitely worth the extra price for the blu-ray edition.
There's not a ton in the way of special features, but an English language track is provided if you're into that sort of thing. I prefer the original French, so I can't speak to the quality of the English track, but like I said it's there.
I don't really know how to sum this up, but if you're at all interested in Iran, but not all that interested in getting bogged down in the vagaries of historical fact, this is a much own disc. Also be prepared, this is not a kids film, while I think teenagers might resonate with some of the subject matter and themes presented here, the material isn't PG enough for the wee one's. Don't be fooled because this is an animated movie, this is a smart, sophisticated film, worthy of repeat viewings.

If you like the graphic novels on which it's based or just graphic novels in general and can deal with the subtitles pick it up because it is an amazing adaptation.
