Un chant d’amour (A Song of Love)

Posted by martinteller on August 20, 2009

As a homosexual who spent most of his life in prison, it’s not really surprising that Jean Genet would make a film about homosexual longing in prison (and authoritarian suppression of it).  Some of it is really lovely… the ways in which the prisoners communicate is a poetic representation of forbidden love.  But a lot of it is kind of silly, or maybe the subject matter just makes me feel that way.  I kept thinking of ways that I would make it better (and I don’t just mean editing out all the wang).  Rating: 6
