She is trying to come up with a just and simple resolution
Shows how innocent Satrapi is
Father teaches her a valuable lesson - "Politics and sentiment don't mix"
Shows how the world of politics works and how emotionless it can be The choice of flow for this set of panels is action to action which helps us to focus on a single subject
The colour choice of black and white helps us to focus on certain aspects and highlights themes of good and evil
The simplistic, almost child-like drawings show the story through a child's innocent perspective
