Editorial Reviews

Cult Epics is proud to present Jean Genet's Un Chant D'Amour, the only film made by the French novelist Jean Genet. Visually reminiscent of Jean Cocteau's Blood of a Poet, Belle et la Bete and Kenneth Anger's Fireworks. The story, set in a prison with three main characters, a guard and two prisoners, is a voyeuristic, confrontational, poetic masterpiece. Forbidden in France upon its release, and only available in the US in censored form and through underground distribution, UN CHANT D'AMOUR is now released from its obscurity and is presented in its complete version on DVD, together with an in-depth Documentary, GENET.

Special Features:

  • New Film Transfer
  • Video Introduction By Jonas Mekas
  • Audio Commentary By Kenneth Anger
  • Bonus: GENET - A Documentary By Antoine Bourseiller

One amazing silent film, that must be seen by any film student, film industry professional, artists of all venues.
I know why it is a silent film, it made me speechless.

Very old and very beautiful film miracle. Try to compare with empty films of today. B&W only but more interesting and intensive then computer generated comics.

I like the subject matter and the treatment. Can't say it's the most erotic, but it has it's moments. Especially smoking through the wall.
