I loved this movie and have loaned it to friends and the feedback has been that it is excellent.

Quiet and sad, but gripping

by greebs on Sep 10, 2008

One would think that the translation of a graphic novel to the screen would make it hard to say, "The book was better." However, the book IS better -- but the movie version is still quite good. Telling her life story, Marjane Satrapi traces her life from a child in Tehran to adulthood in Paris and living through the Islamic Revolution. With that backdrop, amidst the typical teenage angst of trying to figure out exactly who one is, Satrapi paints a gorgeous, gripping -- and extremely sad -- picture. This film is all of those, but somehow feels a little less satisfying, as if something got cut out along the way. While it does use the medium to enhance certain portions of the story, this is yet another case of a film being good, but the book being better. Still, it's very much worth watching and a nice fresh approach to animation (actually, it's the old, antiquated approach, but everything old is, apparently, new again.)
