* BluffingTheAuthorities: The police suspect that Marjane's family has been to a party and are following them home to check for stashed wine. When they arrive, Marjane's grandma asks to enter the house first, claiming she has diabetes and needs to get her medicine urgently. Once inside she and Marjane flush all the wine down the toilet, but later find they needn't have bothered: Marjane's father merely bribed the police officer to get him to leave.

* AdaptationDistillation: Quite a few chapters from the graphic novel are cut from the film version. They intended to add a couple but cut them out. Some scenes, such as Marjane's various jumping-around from home-to-home were also mentioned but minimalized in the film version. The film also meddles with chronology of some events, most likely in order to streamline storytelling. Additionally, Marjanne's relationship with her grandmother is played up a little more in the movie than in the comic. It's often considered to consider the movie a supplement.
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:Markus]], to a limited extent. In the graphic novel, Satrapi acknowledges in hindsight that [[spoiler:she expected way too much of him, using him as a replacement for several key figures in her life back in Iran]], and doesnít hold him [[spoiler:cheating on her]] against him; the film didnít mention this realisation, making him look like a plain {{Jerkass}}.

* HollywoodToneDeaf: The ''Eye of the Tiger'' scene in the movie. Justified, however, in that Marjane is singing in English, which is not her native language. (It's less clear in the English dub of the film, however.)

The door opens and...[[spoiler: it's Marjane's disgusted father, who simply paid off the Guards.]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: The Movie. While the book is by no means light fair, it's presented more matter-of-factly. The movie makes good use of the benefit of timing and sound.
