I''ve waited four months and flnally, I got the chance to see the movie, everybody is talking about. the film I'm talikng about is "Persepolis." this movie was nominated for an Oscar for Best Feature animation. If I were an Oscar voter, I would vote for "Persepolis" over the other two movies that were nominated along with this movie here. This is an aminated movie from France about a little girl named Marji, who grew up in Iran until the rule of the shah and later Islamic rule. the film has provided a refreshing point of view of the country of Iran as seen though the eyes of a woman. The amination isn't as good as many amination movies, but the film has a big heart. I'd rather watch "Persepolis" than "the Bee Movie" anyday. Another thing I like about the animation; The scenes inside Iran is shot in Black and White, while scenes in France is shot in color. the scenes of war between iran and Iraq is powerful. Marji has seen it all. While Marji grew into a woman, her life changed for good or bad. she took on both the authority of the islamic republic of Iran and while in France, she took on a bunch of Nuns, who are no better. I love this movie very much. One advice: there is a English language version of "Persepolis" going around. I would advise to avoid the English version of the movie and stick with the French version. to me, it's much better.
