A regular visit to the FirstSecond Book blog brought me the news that Persepolis the animated movie is completed, and received a 15 minute standing ovation at Cannes! The International Herald Tribune mentioned it in an article dated May 22nd, Marjane Satrapi at Cannes: An Iranian graphic novelist's coming of age.
There's an earlier post on the same subject here, dated Sept 21st, 2006 - I was so excited then, and am still, now! I hope the movie is allowed to play in Indonesian cinemas (considering it takes a lot of guts to publish the book here), but either way I know I'll collect the DVD :)
