A film by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud
Premiering in HRWIFF London Film Festival 2008 - In U.S. Theaters Now!

"AN UNQUALIFIED TRIUMPH!THE MOVIE IS SO ENTHRALLING."-Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES
(Synopsis From The New York Film Festival:) Marjane Satrapi?s spectacular graphic novels about her life as a rebellious young woman in and out of Iran, before and after the Islamic Revolution, have caused a worldwide sensation. This vibrant, groundbreaking animated adaptation, co-directed by Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, is destined to do likewise, for both adults and discerning younger audiences. The bold-faced visual style matches the irrepressible spirit of young Marjane, first as a teenager chafing at the restrictions of the Khomeini regime, later as a disoriented expat in Vienna. Chiara Mastroianni and her real-life mother Catherine Deneuve provide the voices of Marjane and her mother, and every word spoken by the great Danielle Darrieux, as the voice of Marjane?s worldly-wise grandmother, is wisdom to savor.
