Written and directed by Jean Genet (who wrote the popular acclaimed gay themed novel - Our Lady of the Flowers), Un Chant D'Amour is a short film that focuses on homoerotic relationship between two prisoners and the guard that watched them. This black and white film runs for less than 30 minutes. The older prisoner likes the younger guy, and this makes the guard jealous.

Personally this one of my personal favorite. I think it is remarkable to be able to see work done so early in the history of film-making.
