Persepolis 4.8 out of 5based on

Persepolis deals with Iran before and after the Shaw and the decline and fall of an intellectual giant of a culture into a post factist and minimalist regime of repression at the marketplace of ideas. This anime is the story of a family and it's travels, it's rebels, authours, and political dissesdents. It was a great film. I watched it twice. Excellent animation of the higest quality.
