The film Persepolis (Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, 2007) is a close adaptation of Marjane Satrapi’s two-part graphic novel. The books have sold over a million copies worldwide, while the film won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007 and was nominated for Best Animated Film at the 2008 Academy Awards. Underlying the success of both the novel and the film are Satrapi’s strong narrative and evocative graphics. The use of traditional 2D black-and-white animation methods is true to the book’s original graphics (Satrapi did the drawings for both) and is a refreshing change from the 3D, computer-generated films which tend to dominate cinema screens today and in which technical spectacle can sometimes take precedence over storytelling.
