Bonjour Naj,

There exists computer reconstructions of Parsa. Really wonderful, color and harmony.

I think this place should be restored to its past glory, people would come from everywhere to see this.

I would come, too.

I saw Persepolis in the theater. The main characters social life, was more important than her politics to her. I did enjoy the film overall.

It was funny when she said in her little girl voice, when she was young, "Down With The Shah."

Hi all,

SOrry for the response hiatus.

Thanks Sojourner, I will look at it soon; I hope (the opening reminded me of Chien Andalous)

If you have seen the ruins, and the magnitude of those stone carvings, you would recognize that man of today (Machine trained) can never build ore reconstruct anything of that magnitude ... I am all for digital and virtual resoration though. Physically, I thing the grave of history should not be violated.

Yeah the movie is pleasant and cute; and what I like about it is that it remains neutral; it is not vindictive, it is not issuing a political statement; it's just telling "one" story; that of Marjan's ... I am her age ... and when watching it I was thinking "yeah ,me too" ... her story's almost identical to mine ... and perhaps identical to all of us of the same age who live abroad.

The story of those who live abroad must not be mistaken however with teh story of Iranians as a whole ... just like the rich Florida-Cubans should not be taken as representatives of the Cuban people!

We are a segment of the pie who are perhaps by design "shun" out of revolution ...
