Persepolis is a movie about a girl’s relationship with her country. Through the movie, we see how the extremely severe and rigid political measures of Iran's government influenced so many lives (Marjane Satrapi’s included) and how the same people handled them.
One of the aspects that I found very interesting about this film was the relationship of Marjane with the different members of her family, especially the one involving her Uncle Anouche. This one defined a great part of her personality when she grew up.That relationship also introduced Marjane to Marxism and made her understand the importance of fighting for what you think its right instead of just going with the flow.
In the end, Persepolis tells the recent History of Iran, while also showing us a heartfelt coming-of-age story.
