Persepolis & The Colbert Report

Posted in Movie by homeyra on February 22, 2008

Here is Marjane Satrapi, the author of Persepolis on the Colbert Report (after my unsuccessful attempts to embed the clip!). Persepolis seems to have a lot of media coverage and very good reviews.


You can see the trailer, the making of the film and images on Persepolis website

    Did you see Persepolis ? I guess not. It is eloquent. Satrapi succeeded in making form the story of a teenage a universal story. I flet it was in big part my story all along.

    Sorry I have been absent from your blog a while. Sylvain and I were able to see Persepolis in 2007 during the Windsor International Film Festival. It was fantastic.

    Sophia, I saw the movie. The cd with Persian subtitle is obtainable.
    The movie was shown twice in a cultural center. It is the childhood of most urban Iranians – and apparently Lebanese 🙂
    See also Shirin’s stories.
    I really liked the graphic.
    Thanks for your visit Kiki. Np at all, I have your blog on the blog surfer, even if I don’t comment much I am following your adventures 🙂

    Hi Irmgard, I read your article: 36 shopping bags.
    Very interesting, and true. Although we don’t have those flashy shopping centers, one feels the phenomenon.
    Almost obscenity for some and empty shopping bags for the others.
