by Orvar - Mum in New Film on Thursday 31 January 2008

I went to see Persepolis with my mum. We don’t often get to see good films in theaters in Iceland, but once in a while film festivals take place here, and this time it was the annual French film festival. I’d been so excited to see this film ever since I heard it was in the making. Most people have probably heard about it — an animated film based on the comic books of the same name about a young girl growing up through turbulent times in Iran. My mum and I laughed and cried and ate popcorn. I want to see this film again.
