i really enjoyed the second half of satrapis story - the build up of it and watching it get more entwined allowed me to delve  into it in a manner that i had not anticipated. the story line here had a similar effect on me as did gaimans novel which was a good surprise. i was able to connect with it more and find more depth in it, mainly because i think she allowed it to get more disturbing in the second half which drew me in.

as far as the movie goes, it was one of the first movies ive seen that did not completely maul the book and this i think was made possible by satrapis involvement in it. the movie reminded me of a dream sequence - the manner in which it played out like a flashback and the switch from black and white to colour was very well done and added a certain depth and room for perception to the story itself.
