The New York Times yesterday carried a nice piece on Persepolis, the animated movie adaptation of Marjane Satrapi's comic strip. The film is directed by Satrapi and Vincent Parronaud and, in the original French, features vocal turns from Catherine Deneuve, Danielle Darieux and Chiara Mastroianni.
Of her collaboration with Parronaud, Satrapi says "“We’re like the Coen brothers. We’re very complementary. I would have made much more of a Bergman movie. But I don’t want something that a couple of intellectuals in Paris and New York will watch and nobody else.”
