Description

La force de Guy Delisle est de ne pas chercher à écrire des documentaires détaillés. Il dit ce qu’il voit, ce qui le choque, sans chercher à appuyer sur l’aspect politique des choses. C’est le lecteur qui, guidé subtilement, se fait son opinion. L’auteur exprime un ressenti et ne cherche pas à nous le présenter comme une vérité objective.

Concernant le dessin, le trait peut sembler simple, mais la colorisation en niveaux de gris apporte de la matière, rendant l'ensemble très expressif.

Shenzhen est le premier ouvrage de Delisle basé sur un carnet de voyage et c'est déjà un chef d'oeuvre. On s’intéresse autant aux péripéties de Guy qu’au pays en lui-même.

Cerise sur le gâteau : on apprend énormément d'astuces sur les techniques d'animation, dont Guy Delisle en maîtrise manifestement tous les ressorts.
