Un Chant D'Amour (A Song of Love) (1950)
Critic Reviews for Un Chant D'Amour (A Song of Love)
Silent and wordless, it poetically and delicately recapitulates some of the themes of [Genet's] novels.
Curio underground short experimental film about gay life in prisons.
Strictly of curio value, it can offer contemporary viewers little more than some unintentional gay giggles. Oh, those French boys!
A revolutionary vision of emancipation through sensuality, Un Chant d'Amour is a song of love both universal and eternal.
Audience Reviews for Un Chant D'Amour (A Song of Love)
The only film made by the controversial playwright Jean Genet, an extremely sensual and provocative homoerotic tale that was certainly ahead of its time, with so much powerful imagery and intense desire overflowing from the screen.
A quite well-made, evocative short. Surprising that Genet never directed another film. And its sexual content is STILL daring -- when's the last time you saw an erect penis in an art film?
A short film about love?Yes,a perfect example of jealousy and repression,the first piece of queer cinema by a legendary playwright.
