Persepolis follows the misadventures of Marjane, from mischievous little girl in Iran to rebellious teenager finding first love among decadent anarchists at a boarding school in Vienna. The film then charts the young woman’s heavy-hearted return to Iran, and finally her emigration to Paris.

MUBI's take

This animated chronicle of three generations of women amid the Iranian Revolution, co-directed and adapted by Satrapi from her graphic autobiography, is one of the most unforgettable coming-of-age stories of the new millennium. Voiced by mother-daughter duo Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve!
