Joged-Bumbung ou: La Joie de Vivre (1990)

Joe Giusto Pinelli is an artist who plays with the nuances of black and white. His erotic tinged stories are both realistic and caricature. They are a reflection of the era in which they are published, with a sense of genuineness, rudeness and intimacy, and are sometimes shocking.
