The Voices - Review

featured

I had heard a lot of Persepolis when it was released almost seven years back but never got around to watching. While I did peruse the graphic novel it is based on and was aware of the general story line, this was the first film I have seen by Marjane Satrapi. While the overall tone of the story is rather dark, the writing was quite amazing and brought out the humor in the way the protagonist, deftly played by Ryan Reynolds, sees the world and the way it actually is. It was an interesting way to see the story as it unfolds from his eyes while he clearly suffers from schizophrenia. One of the picks from my selection this year. Hopefully it will be out in theatres sometime soon.
