Yukiko's Spinach Manga
About Yukiko's Spinach Manga
Yukiko's Spinach is one of the most surprising books in the history of bande dessinee. Nevertheless, the methods he uses are among the most simple, it's as if the author were telling us in real time about the little adventure he had with Yukiko Hashimoto.Yukiko in the hands of Boilet is the most beautiful girl in the world, beautiful like Anna Karina through Godard's eyes, beautiful like Maggie Cheung closely examined by Assayas. Fraric Boilet is an intimist, drawing the tenderness, the emotional tie, the loving relationship with a subjective camera, the fleeting moment where one finally grasps it. Yukiko's Spinach is an autobiographical account detailing French artist Boilet's infatuation, courtship, affair and break-up with the eponymous Yukiko - a young Japanese woman who never attempts to disguise the fact that, whilst she might love Boilet, he is not the man she ultimately wants to be with.
