Acqua Alta

ACQUA ALTA par Daria Schmitt, chez Casterman

Série en deux volumes, à paraître le 8 septembre 2010

Ultréquinoxe. Cité mystérieuse, coupée du monde, entourée d'eau. Dans quelques jours, les portes de la ville vont s'ouvrir et laisser entrer les gens d'ailleurs... Dans quelques jours, c'est le Grand Carnaval, qui va durer 7 jours, pas un de plus. 7 jours durant lesquels Ultréquinoxe reprend vie et promet de rendre aux participants ce que l'extérieur leur a pris...

Luc et Mathieu sont deux appariteurs, et comme tous ceux de leur caste, ils sont chargés d'acheminer jusqu'à la cité le matériel nécessaire aux festivités. Cette année pourtant, le maire leur a confié une mission supplémentaire : lui faire parvenir en secret une boîte, un cube noir qui semble changer de taille à volonté.

Qu'est vraiment cet objet ? A quoi peut-il servir ? C'est bien là l'intrigue d'Acqua Alta. Et sa force réside dans cette faculté à créer le doute, le questionnement au sujet d'un objet oscillant entre l'infiniment petit et l'infiniment grand.

Au milieu de ruelles labyrinthiques, d'habitants plus semblables les uns que les autres en fonction de leurs rôles, c'est bien cette boîte le personnage principal de cette BD. Rien qu'un cube pourtant.

Une boîte donc, et bien sûr, une ville, Ultréquinoxe. Monumentale, défiant par moment les lois de la physique, en proie à une inquiétante montée des eaux, elle est à mi-chemin entre une "Cité obscure", Venise, et quelque batîment tiraillé sorti tout droit de l'imagination de M.C. Escher. Cité irréelle, elle constitue donc l'écrin parfait pour cette boîte, source de tous les questionnements.

Vous l'aurez compris, Acqua Alta est avant tout une œuvre d'ambiance, mystérieuse, tortueuse même. Un monde, une simple cité, intrigant, où les habitants semblent tous plus silencieux les uns que les autres, où chaque bâtiment donne le vertige, et où deux pauvres appariteurs errent sans autre but que de comprendre ce que représente cette boîte. Comme eux, vous allez vous laisser embarquer dans cette quête insensée, dans les ruelles vides ou le quartier des clones. Profitez, admirez la beauté des décors. Bienvenue à Ultréquinoxe.

Deux volumes, denses, superbes. Acqua Alta est de ces BD qui ne laissent pas indifférent. Une histoire merveilleuse bien que par moments insensée et un décor grandiose dans lesquels on se laisse plonger avec délice, comme transporté dans un autre monde, l'espace d'une lecture.
