Stopped by the local video rental store and picked up "Chicken with Plums" since K and I had meant to see it in theaters a while back but circumstances prevented it. Really wanted to like it, since I am a big fan of Marjane Satrapi, but somehow the unsympatheticness of the main character got in the way of me enjoying the movie as a whole. His plan to commit suicide seems simply childish rather than tragic, and his I-will-never-truly-love-anyone-again crush on Irâne was developed too little and too late in the film to have any effect on me. That being said, it did have its moments. The angel-of-death sequence was definitely full of Satrapi's delightful and characteristic playfulness about religion, and the animation in it was adorable. 5/10
