Nocturne est la chronique d’une nuit qui peine à voir le jour...

A solid 3 1/2 stars. Very Edward Hooper in style and atmosphere. Cole Porter music as the thread that unites the whole story of three people on the bricks on despairs and failure. Very 1930's. Classic Blanchet. More of a emotional picture book than a whole story but that's okay. Sometimes you don't need words or plot to make an impact.

Interesante novela gráfica de Pascal Blanchet, historias entrelazadas con excelentes gráficos y banda sonora.

Encuentro algo casi cinematográfico en esta novela gráfica.
Imágenes y sonido. No sé, quizá sea mi percepción.
Me agrada que nunca vemos realmente los ojos de los personajes.
Los dibujos son fascinantes.
Me puse a buscar un poco sobre Pascal Blanchet y encontré un estilo de dibujo tan bello, tan como me gusta, que definitivamente seguiré sus novelas.

Con respecto a la historia, es muy corta, no le entendí mucho. Creo que es un círculo o una onda como la música, pero las páginas oscuras te van lleva

Si seulement je pouvais mettre 15 étoiles...
Ce livre est une merveille!!! Très peu de mots, un graphisme très réussi, inspiré de l'âge d'or américain de l'illustration, très stylisé, au service de la solitude étouffante des personnages.

Chaque planche est magnifique.

La discographie à la fin du livre permet, à la relecture, permet de renforcer l'atmosphère bien particulière créée par Blanchet.

La soledad, el fracaso y el remordimiento marcan a los tres incompletos protagonistas de este retrato elegante y nostálgico, donde el jazz y el art déco son el trasfondo y el hilo conductor para decisiones tomadas en la intimidad de un caluroso sábado neoyorquino, el 28 de agosto de 1948.

Las ilustraciones geniales pero la historia? Aún así muy melancólico y consigue en parte recrear la atmósfera.

C'est beau, tellement beau. Et rétro.

Un livre illustré sans paroles sur le jazz des années 1920, les bars enfumés, les femmes longilignes et les lèvres vermeilles.
