Marjane Satrapi (en persan : مرجان ساتراپی, Marjāne Sātrāpi), à l'état civil Marjane Ebrahimi, (née le 22 novembre 1969 à Rasht, Iran) est une auteur de bande dessinée (scénariste et dessinatrice), peintre et réalisatrice française et iranienne et d'expression francophone.

Biography

Marjane Satrapi est née le 22 novembre 1969 dans une famille de Téhéran, proche des idées communistes. Elle vit, en tant qu'enfant, la restriction grandissante des libertés individuelles et les conséquences dans la vie quotidienne des événements politiques de l'époque, particulièrement la révolution islamique et les débuts de la guerre Iran-Irak. Son oncle Anouche, un dirigeant du Parti communiste iranien à qui elle est très attachée, est exécuté pour ses opinions politiques.

En 1984, à l'âge de 14 ans, elle est envoyée par ses parents au lycée français de Vienne, en Autriche, où elle reste pendant quatre ans. Après un retour en 1988 en Iran, et l'obtention d'une maitrise de communication visuelle à l'école des beaux arts de Téhéran, elle part ensuite, en 1994, en France et fait des études à l'École supérieure des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg. Elle réside actuellement à Paris.

Son entrée à l'atelier des Vosges, au sein duquel sont associés des dessinateurs comme Émile Bravo, Fabrice Tarrin, Christophe Blain, Joann Sfar, Frédéric Boilet ou David B., lui donnent le goût de la bande dessinée. La vraie révélation vient de la lecture de Maus de Art Spiegelman. Elle publie les quatre tomes de Persepolis entre 2000 et 2003 et obtient un grand succès critique et commercial. En 2003, elle publie Broderies, nommé dans la catégorie du meilleur album au Festival d'Angoulême 2004. Finalement, son dernier livre, Poulet aux prunes, paraît en 2004, couronné cette fois-ci par le prix du meilleur album.

Entre 2005 et 2007, elle réalise en partenariat avec Vincent Paronnaud Persepolis, l'adaptation de sa bande dessinée autobiographique en long métrage d'animation en noir et blanc, sorti le 27 juin 2007. Il est projeté au Festival de Cannes 2007 au sein de la sélection officielle. À cette occasion, la République islamique d'Iran s'est inquiétée de voir la sélection de ce film présentant ce qu'elle trouve être « un tableau irréel des conséquences et des réussites de la révolution islamique ». Le film recevra, malgré la polémique, le Prix du Jury du Festival et obtiendra un succès international couronné par deux Césars l'année suivante (ceux du meilleur premier film et de la meilleure adaptation) ainsi que par une nomination à l'Oscar 2008 du meilleur film d'animation. En 2008, elle remporte également le Prix International d'Humour Gat Perich.

En 2010, elle adapte son album Poulet aux prunes au cinéma dans un film également titré Poulet aux prunes, sélectionné en compétition lors de la Mostra de Venise en 2011, et qui a gagné le prix du meilleur Long métrage au festival international de film d'Abu Dhabi ainsi que le prix du public à São Paulo. Le film sera distribué aux États-Unis en 2012 par Sony Classics.

Elle parle anglais, allemand, italien et suédois en plus de sa langue maternelle et du français.

Jerry is an upbeat man who works at a bathtub factory, and lives in a modified apartment above a bowling alley with his dog Bosco and his cat, Mr. Whiskers. Jerry is a man with an innocent, almost child-like demeanor, and suffers from delusions and hallucinations that manifest in the form of his pets talking to him. Bosco often represents his good intentions while Mr. Whiskers represents his more violent nature. One day, his manager compliments his hard work and chooses him to help organize an employee barbecue, and he gladly accepts the opportunity to work with his workplace crush, a British woman named Fiona. The following day he asks her out on a date. She initially agrees, though with reluctance, but then stands him up to go to a karaoke party with two other girls who work with her in the accounting department at work, Lisa and Alison. After the party, Fiona's car won't start, leading her to flag down Jerry as he drives by. Fiona offers to take him out for a late dinner to make up for standing him up on the original date, but on the way, Jerry accidentally hits a stag which crashes through his windshield. Jerry's hallucinations show the deer crying out in pain and begging Jerry to kill it so he slits the deer's throat. Fiona, terrified, runs off into the woods. Jerry pursues her and accidentally stabs her. Apologizing for his actions, Jerry kills Fiona to end her pain.

As a young man, violinist Nasser Ali Khan (Mathieu Amalric) falls in love with Irâne (Golshifteh Farahani), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy shopkeeper. Her father forbids them to marry, convinced that an artist could never financially support his daughter. The dismayed musician could only carry on because his mentor gave him a special violin and advised him to sublimate his affliction. Consequently, he became a renowned artist and eventually married another woman. Nonetheless in his mind he is still with Irâne. When his lack of affection for his family leads to serious dispute between him and his wife she destroys his beloved violin. It strikes him he is no longer up to make music as he did before and therefore he is longing for death. After rejecting more conventional methods of suicide, he decides to simply lie in bed until death will have him. As he awaits the arrival of death, he is awash in visions of the past and the film lets the spectator accompany him on this bizarre and strangely beautiful journey.
