A movie review

Persepolis:

Here is a summary of the review:
"Based on a graphic novel, the beautifully hand-drawn, black-and-white Persepolis is an autobiographical story of Marjane Satrapi, an Iranian woman who spent the first decade of her life living a relatively happy childhood in Tehran, before being packed off to Vienna by her liberal parents. The film is a masterclass in economic story-telling, effectively condensing many years into just over 90 minutes, and Satrapi and writer-director Vincent Paronnaud manage to find verbal and visual humour in even the darkest of situations."
