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 acclaimed coming-of-age feature chronicles a young girl during the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Co-directed and adapted by Marjane Satrapi from her graphic autobiography into beautiful black-and-white animation, the film is voiced by mother-daughter duo Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve!
