god this is one of my top 2 inspirations to study animation. i love a concise art style. there’s no frills, just an economic use of shapes and lines and it’s so powerful. makes me want to draw!!!
and i love movies that represent children accurately!!! young marjane’s wide-eyed mischievous smile is adorable, its just a few lines but you can see the cogs in the brain turning. UGH
i don’t know enough animation history to say that Persepolis invented changing animation styles for time jumps but i’m gonna say: THEY INVENTED IT.
