In 1970s Iran, Marjane "Marji" Satrapi watches events through her young eyes and her idealistic family. Their long dream is realized when the hated Shah is defeated in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. Now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, Marji grows up to witness first hand how the new Iran has become a repressive tyranny on its own. With Marji dangerously refusing to remain silent at this injustice, her parents send her abroad to Vienna to study. This change proves an equally difficult trial for Marji as she finds herself in a different culture loaded with abrasive characters and profound disappointments that deeply trouble her. Even when she returns home, Marji finds that both she and her homeland have changed too much and the young woman and her loving family must decide where she truly belongs

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 )

29 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 658 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

"Téhéran (Iran) 1978 : Marjane, huit ans, songe à l'avenir et se rêve en prophète sauvant le monde. Choyée par des parents modernes et cultivés, particulièrement liée à sa grand-mère, elle suit avec exaltation les évènements qui vont mener à la révolution et provoquer la chute du régime du Chah. Avec l'instauration de la République islamique débute le temps des "commissaires de la révolution" qui contrôlent tenues et comportements. Marjane qui doit porter le voile, se rêve désormais en révolutionnaire. Bientôt, la guerre contre l'Irak entraîne bombardements, privations, et disparitions de proches. La répression intérieure devient chaque jour plus sévère. Dans un contexte de plus en plus pénible, sa langue bien pendue et ses positions rebelles deviennent problématiques. Ses parents décident alors de l'envoyer en Autriche pour la protéger. A Vienne, Marjane vit à quatorze ans sa deuxième révolution : l'adolescence, la liberté, les vertiges de l'amour mais aussi l'exil, la solitude et la différence."

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
