Persepolis

Just went with my daughter to see Persepolis. It's a really good film, that I think virtually anyone would like. It's a fairly stylised film, very simplified monochrome animation, with subtitles, set in revolutionary Iran. It sounds bloody grim doesn't it?

But really, it's rapid, witty, moving, interesting: all the good stuff. I probably wouldn't have gone to see it except happytune told me how much she had enjoyed it, and my daughter kept pestering me to take her. The main character and her grandma are tough likeable chicks, the stylised animation makes the story accessible, and it makes you laugh quite a lot.
