"Persepolis" is a film that sticks in my memory for myriad reasons, not the least of which is that it gave me the opportunity to interview my favorite actress of all time. I had plenty of reasons to smile. Lunch in Cannes with the Grande Dame of Cinema! What a day that was!

And yes, we drank rosé with lunch.
