Liebestrasse Review

  • Eric Novello
    January 1, 1970
    Um casal gay se conhecendo e vivendo um romance em Berlim na época da ascensão do nazismo. Não preciso dizer que não é uma história feliz, mas ainda assim o roteiro é delicado na sua forma de mostrar como as coisas foram piorando e a arte traz certa harmonia pra situação. Você passa mais tempo curtindo o entrosamento do casal do que sofrendo. Um detalhe importante é que a violência não é muito gráfica. O que acontece está claro, mas ninguém quer chocar o leitor com imagens, basta o contexto, Um casal gay se conhecendo e vivendo um romance em Berlim na época da ascensão do nazismo. Não preciso dizer que não é uma história feliz, mas ainda assim o roteiro é delicado na sua forma de mostrar como as coisas foram piorando e a arte traz certa harmonia pra situação. Você passa mais tempo curtindo o entrosamento do casal do que sofrendo. Um detalhe importante é que a violência não é muito gráfica. O que acontece está claro, mas ninguém quer chocar o leitor com imagens, basta o contexto, afinal. O mesmo vale para o contexto sexual. É bem legal ver o casal se curtindo, acordando na cama, se arrumando pra sair... coisas de dia a dia comuns.Um ponto histórico interessante é mostrar com poucas palavras que muita gente não se mexeu pra ajudar quem precisava ser ajudado. O nazismo teve apoio financeiro de fora da Alemanha, e pra variar, o preconceito contra gays vinha de todos os lados, fosse país nazista ou não (Estados Unidos, estou olhando para vc... de novo).Demorou um pouco para me fisgar, por isso 4 estrelas, mas passado 1/3, fiquei bastante envolvido com personagens e história.

    Heartbreaking. I'm sure there are countless real life stories like this from Nazi Germany.

    It's a beautiful work about love and passion. There's the love Sam feels for pre-war Berlin, magical and warm. Berlin opens her arms and and greets him warmly. There's the love one can feel for art in her many shapes and forms. The passion that resonates in the people that flock to it. Bourgeoisie, those that enjoy life in the moment. Those that refuse to conform to the increasing pressure of Nazi Germany. And there's a love between two men, a love that feels so average and so mundane and It's a beautiful work about love and passion. There's the love Sam feels for pre-war Berlin, magical and warm. Berlin opens her arms and and greets him warmly. There's the love one can feel for art in her many shapes and forms. The passion that resonates in the people that flock to it. Bourgeoisie, those that enjoy life in the moment. Those that refuse to conform to the increasing pressure of Nazi Germany. And there's a love between two men, a love that feels so average and so mundane and absolutely without harm to anyone. It could be you or me or you and me. But it's Nazi Germany and before you know it -there's hardly a warning- Phillip disappears from the pages and he is never seen again. I finished this beautiful story and was sad for a long while. Because it has happened. And it will again. Please read this. Don't be Phillip. Don't be Sam. Take a little of both, but take most from Phillip's sister most. She shines. Tim Fish is an artist we should treasure. A classic feel with modern age crisp to it. I loved it. Hopefully you will, too.

    An emotional story about two man loving each other during the third Reich. This comic offers several thoughts about the growth of a toxic idea which is bound to get concrete. It's not just a love story

    Found this on Prime Reading and decided to give it a try.Liebestrasse is a graphic novel that follows the life of an American man who moves to Germany in 1932 and falls in love with a man there. We follow the couple and how they are effected by the Nazi's rise to power and the beginning of WWII. A poignant read which gives a lesser told perspective on a tragic period of history.
