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.
