*Read Book ⛎ Hallo Monsieur Hulot å Willkommen In Der Welt Von Monsieur Hulot In Fantastischen Bildgeschichten Zeigen Sich Die Ganze Poesie, Der Humor Und Der Subversive Charakter Dieser Weltber Hmten Figur Von Jacques Tati Dem Scharfsinnigen Beobachter David Merveille Ist Eine Gro Artige Adaption Gelungen Feinsinnig, Raffiniert Und Bei Jeder Pointe Berraschend This is catalogued as a children s graphic novel J741.59M but I think the humor is understandable for adults There are very few actual words in this slim book, so I thought it would be very quick to leaf through But I found that I had to spend a few minutes on each scene to understand the story being portrayed It was a lot of fun Illustrations were very cute and very French. The book is a delightful adaptation of the famous French film character, but there is an inherent flaw which kept me from giving it stars The book varies wildly from page to page as to the intended audience Some of the sight gags are suitable for varying ages of children, others are clearly aimed at adults The jokes in some of these are way past obscure His parody of famous images from different cultures includes a few references that are quite obscure Dropping confetti near a funeral and aiming his derriere toward a visiting dignitary, along with what is apparently the international symbol for breakdancing, may go over the heads of younger readers So might his shadow s imaginary love life.Still, David Merveille has created a labor of love in his tribute to the Mr Hulot films, and the short wordless stories are clever and interesting.
This was an amazing book with no words, except the title of each small section There was a short story on every second page, described only in pictures It was a fascinating journey sometimes we had to start at the end of each small story and work backwards to work out what happened. Whimsical, colorful illustrations capturing Jacques Tati s film character, Monsieur Hulot Each is like a little puzzle to solve Merveille s art is noteworthy Thanks Joan and Piyali for recommending this
