Persepolis: Exclusively in VO

posted by on October 15 at 12:52 PM

Fantastic news, in my opinion. According to David D’Arcy at Greencine Daily, Persepolis will not be released in the US in the dubbed version that’s been frightening me over at IMDB for months. (Sean Penn and Iggy Pop were among the credited voice cast.)


The dubbed version already exists —and might show up as an extra on the DVD—but theaters will show the version originale.

VO is for "version originale", not "voiceover"? Next you'll be telling me inflammable means flammable.

In France it is. Yes, I'm being pretentious, but it is a French movie.

Still you gotta admit, Iggy Pop as the Ayatollah Khomeini is an inspired choice. Bea Arthur as little Marjane and Tom Waits as her father should also be good.

Excellent! I was worried it would be like Princess Mononoke and we'd have to wait for the DVD to see the original version.

What happened to the Public Intern/Wedding Crasher post that previously was after this one?

ok, that's weird - I swear it wasn't listed at all, and then it reappeared when I hit refresh. Spooky!
