The movie sparkles with witty self-awareness.
While so many films about coming of age involve manufactured dilemmas, here is one about a woman who indeed does come of age, and magnificently.

The filmmakers were right to believe that a live-action version of this story would have failed to achieve the universality Persepolis does.
