Jean Genet – Un Chant d’Amour (1950)

Of asterisk worthy designation for being the only film created by Jean Genet, this 1950 experimental short involves several themes that permeated the French writer’s literary endeavors (homoeroticism, prison environments, voyeurism). But working in a silent film Medium robs Genet of the lyrical language that dominated his Artistic genius, and instead he presents a skin of imagery that becomes sillier and sillier as the film progresses. Strictly of curio value,Un Chant d’Amour can offer contemporary viewers little more than some unintentional gay giggles. O, those French boys!
