Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Silent and wordless, it poetically and delicately recapitulates some of the themes of [Genet's] novels."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Strictly of curio value, it can offer contemporary viewers little more than some unintentional gay giggles. Oh, those French boys!"
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Packed with shots of full frontal hard ons, masturbation, and extreme close ups of sweaty feet, armpits and thighs, Jean Genet's only film is confrontingly explicit."
‑ Mark Adnum, Senses of Cinema
"Curio underground short experimental film about gay life in prisons."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A revolutionary vision of emancipation through sensuality, Un Chant d'Amour is a song of love both universal and eternal."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
"It's a very effective film, and quite lovely at times."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Genet's film exhibits the obvious influence of his friend Jean Cocteau. Despite this, the tone and content is pure Genet."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
