Kind of interesting and is kind of original but its telling moments are told so often it's like going out to dinner and being served the same course over and over.

Persepolis, despite its inventive and pleasing animation, drags on dully.

As a reminder that Iran is a complex society with a long tradition of cosmopolitan interchange with the West, Persepolis could hardly be more welcome. As a narrative, however, the film sometimes loses its way.

There's a good lesson here about Iranian history but it's not exactly gripping material. Amounts pretty much to a "so what?"

Persepolis feels abstract, never deeply personal, because Satrapi offers only surfaces and push-pin thoughts while sharing here sincere but glib sisterhood with Iranian history.

With the political message of Persepolis considerably softened, the overall effect is dulled significantly.

There is no denying the boldness of Persepolis, both in design and in moral complaint, but there must surely be moments, in Marjane's life as in ours, that cry out for cross-hatching and the grown-up grayness of doubt.
