Un Chant d'Amour

Jean Genet’s one and only film, a distillation of his abiding obsessions. In neighbouring cells, two convicts daydream, masturbate and communicate through the walls, watched by a voyeuristic warden who fantasises alternately killing them or making love to them; in Genet’s hands, this claustrophobic premise explodes with tension and eroticism. An undoubted masterpiece.
