Persepolis (2007)

persepolis

Directors: Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi
Stars: Chiara Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve, Gena Rowlands

Poignant coming-of-age story of a precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl that begins during the Islamic Revolution.

I love it! Well, I loved the graphic novel more (read my review), but the film version is good as well. I credit it to Marjane Satrapi’s very colorful life. I never knew her before reading the book, and now I look up to her. 🙂

On the Sly (2011)

À pas de loup

Director: Olivier Ringer
Stars: Wynona Ringer

In a world and in a time not so faraway lived a little girl who had the feeling to be invisible in her parents eyes. To be sure, she decided to disappear.

This movie definitely sent me back to the time all I wanna do in life is have an adventure and could care less about anything.
