Description: Filmmakers Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi collaborated to co-write and co-direct this adaptation of Satrapi's bestselling autobiographical graphic novel detailing the trials faced by an outspoken Iranian girl who finds her unique attitude and outlook on life repeatedly challenged during the Islamic revolution. The English-language version features the voice talents of Sean Penn, Gena Rowlands, and Iggy Pop, with Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni reprising their roles from the original French-language version.
Reason: I know this isn't an ideal representation of a film that would have played on Toonami, but the film is an extremely amazing adult animation. The animation itself is very smooth and resembles the illustrations from the graphic novel of which the film is based on (Persepolis the graphic novel is also outstanding). The story is fascinating, informative, humorous and biographical. The voice acting, as well, is extremely clean and appropriate. I feel the description I posted doesn't do this film the justice it deserves. It is by far one of the best animated films ever made. So, even if this movie does get rejected on the forums, I definitely suggest that all of you go watch it at some time.
Dub Availability: This is available as an english dub.
