Suitcases, Badminton And Gangsters In Marjane Satrapi's LA BANDE DES JOTAS

, Founder and Editor
We've come to expect certain things from Persepolis and Chicken With Plums director Marjane Satrapi and it would appear that gleefully delivering something else entirely is a significant part of the point to her latest effort La Bande Des Jotas. Heck, the fact that it's not a typical Satrapi film is happily referenced in the trailer.

This time out Satrapi has put aside the autobiographical elements of her earlier work and instead embraced what looks to be an Coen-esque spin on crime comedy, one laced with absurdity and colorful characters. Characters who love badminton and carry guns. Check out the trailer below for a taste of what I mean.

    It seems to be very cheap, but it could be good. Good to see her doing something different.
