Chicken with plums by Marjane Satrapi( Book )

We are in Tehran in 1958, and Nasser Ali Khan, one of Iran's most revered tar players, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged. Though he tries, he cannot find one to replace it, one whose sound speaks to him with the same power and passion with which his music speaks to others. In despair, he takes to his bed, renouncing the world and all its pleasures, closing the door on the demands and love of his wife and his four children. Over the course of the week that follows, his family and close friends attempt to change his mind, but Nasser Ali slips further and further into his own reveries: flashbacks and flash-forwards (with unexpected appearances by the likes of the Angel of Death and Sophia Loren) from his own childhood through his children's futures. And as the pieces of his story slowly fall into place, we begin to understand the profundity of his decision to give up life

Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path
Poulet aux prunes = Chicken with plums by Marjane Satrapi( Visual )

27 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For their lovely, yet tragic film, graphic artists Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud reunite for a second story drawn from Satrapi's family's rich history. Instead of an animated feature, like Persepolis, they turn to live action. In pre-revolutionary Tehran, Nasser-Ali Khan (Mathieu Amalric) comes across as a curmudgeon who cares more about his career than his family, but there's more to the musician than meets the eye. With his son's help, he sets out to replace his broken violin, leading to adventures with a mysterious woman (Golshifteh Farahani) and a magical merchant (Jamel Debbouze, delightful), but when no suitable replacement materializes, Nasser announces his plan to pack it in. As he lies in bed, waiting to die, he reflects on incidents involving a judgmental clockmaker (Serge Avedikian) and his headstrong mother (Isabella Rossellini). Then, he meets the Angel of Death (narrator Edouard Baer), who gives him a glance at the fates that await his loved ones, much as in A Christmas Carol (Chiara Mastroianni plays his adult daughter). Meanwhile, his wife (Maria de Medeiros) plies him with delicacies, like chicken with plums, but he insists that death is the only solution, which makes this sound like a grim affair, except Satrapi and Paronnaud find the humor in the scenario and the beauty in the milieu, combining stylized sets and hand-drawn backdrops. Much as with Sean Penn's guitarist in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown, Amalric never strives to make Nasser-Ali likable, but he succeeds in making this stubborn man understandable. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi( Book )

in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une bande dessinée iranienne, interdite au pays des barbus et pour cause.C'est un portrait passionnant, sans complaisance d'une société tyrannique moyen-âgeuse.L'humour est présent dans cette BD. On arrive à rire certes mais il y a aussi des passages assez difficiles avec la description poignante parfois, de situations vécues par Marji, ses amis et sa famille. L'auteure, née dans une famille de la petite bourgeoisie iranienne, progressiste connaît l'espoir partagé quand les républicains, longtemps contraints à la clandestinité se mobilisent contre le chah. Ensuite tout va très vite, la contre révolution islamiste, les emprisonnements, les assassinats, la suppression des libertés démocratiques. Les barbus sont partout, les jeunes filles sont obligées de porter le voile. Marji nous raconte sa vie. Ses parents l'envoient étudier en Europe. Elle revient en Iran quelques années après, c'est une adulte, elle est transformée, elle, mais pas la société iranienne qui continue à sombrer dans la barbarie. La résistance sous la terreur s'organise, : des fêtes clandestines, des rencontres, des relations sexuelles hors mariages malgré l'interdiction. Marji devient étudiante en faculté d'art. Elle nous conte ses heurts avec la hiérarchie à propos de ses dessins, les relations clandestines avec celles et ceux qui refusent de vivre confinés dans une misère culturelle et sexuelle. Après son divorce, Marji finit par partir d'Iran pour rejoindre la France au grand soulagement de ses parents qui craignaient pour sa sécurité. La vie en Iran est dépeinte avec du réalisme émouvant dans une BD alerte, pleine de rythme... Jean-François CHALOT
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi( Book )

in German and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jugendjahre einer Iranerin: Marjane kommt mit vierzehn Jahren alleine aus dem islamistischen Regime des Irans in das westliche Europa - genauer gesagt nach Wien. Dort versucht sie sich so gut wie möglich zu integrieren, was ihr verständlicherweise nicht so einfach fällt. Da gibt es z.B. Feste, auf denen gar nicht getanzt, sondern nur geraucht und herumgelegen wird - auch die öffentliche Intimität trägt zur Verwirrung bei. Sie findet dennoch Anschluss in eine Gruppe und erlebt schliesslich vier wilde Jahre bis zum eigentlichen Absturz wegen Liebeskummer. So kehrt sie gescheitert in den Iran zurück. Um ihren Freund kennenzulernen, muss sie diesen (mit 21 Jahren) heiraten, was ihre liberal-linken Eltern geradezu schockiert - haben sie doch alles dafür gegeben, dass ihre Tochter eine freie Frau wird. Mit 24 Jahren ist dann ihre Geschichte im Iran definitiv zu Ende, sie lebt jetzt in Paris. Um die westlichen Vorurteile gegen den Iran abzubauen, hat sie sich mit grafisch unkomplizierten, aber sehr ansprechenden Bildern im Comicmedium ein Werk geschaffen, das nicht nur biografisch, sondern auch historisch-politisch sehr interessant ist. Zur idealen Ergänzung sei ihr erster Band über die Kindheit im Iran ebenfalls sehr empfohlen! Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Urs Geissbühler
