I happened to see Persepolis, a cartoon movie made by and / or based on the book by Marjane Satrapi. The movie is on at Kino Engel (in Helsinki, that is) currently, but Allah only knows for how long - so go and see it.

It's a very important movie. It's a profeminist movie. It's a political movie. It's a very enjoyable and fascinating movie. It's a humorous movie. It's a serious movie. It's a movie you won't forget.

It's movie about a young girl growing up to womanhood in Iran, first under the Shah, then under the mullahs. It's Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical account from this process. It's based on her cartoon book with the same name.

I totally second

I totally second the recommendation, I saw it at R&A festival and it rocks.
