Let’s go abroad. A place we can be free.
I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn’t be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason.
“Listen. I don’t like to preach, but here’s some advice. You’ll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it’s because they’re stupid. Don’t react to their cruelty. There’s nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself.”
I learned more about love, life and freedom by reading a comic than in all the years of my short life. It’s not easy to tell the story of the revolution of a Nation and of a war in such a great and delicate way, through the eyes of a special young kid; and I got angry, I cryed, I laughed with Marjane, and it helped me to figure out so many political, religious and personal Iran’s issues. The movie was great as well, but not as good and as deep as the comic book.
“How do you trust your feelings when they can just disappear like that?”
Such an amazing movie with two amazing actors.
