One of the best and most distinctive animated films for grown-ups in recent years, this highly accessible girl's eye view of Iran's Islamic Revolution is a rare treat that defies categorisation. Adapted from Marjane Satrapi's hugely successful graphic novels of the same name, Persepolis is full of enjoyable pop culture references, but doesn't shrink from showing the serious consequences of totalitarianism.
