It was a lot of fun to see director Marjane Satrapi enjoy the lead in her own movie 'La bande des jotas'. She has charisma to spare, and her dialogs are offbeat and funny, as were the many confrontations with the duo she squads up with. Visually, it is very much worthwhile as well, and there are some utterly weird bits here and there.The weirdest part happened at the very end, of which I still don't understand one iota. And it seems there is no decent (with English or Dutch subs) DVD-release of this movie anywhere, so I'll just hold my fingers crossed and hope there will be one someday (I just had the luck of finding this via TV5 Monde). Maybe then, I'll be able to figure it all out...?In the meantime, I'm not at all bothered by not understanding what it all exactly means, because it is very entertaining on its own - agree the mystery!A nice 8 out of 10.
