Un Chant d'amour

France 1950

Picture and details imdb

Seen 15 June 2006

Enthralling. This short film - 25 minutes - is a gem of a film. It is a love story between two prisoners who are in different cells. The longing for each other is captured marvelously by the camera. Interspersed are the fantasy sequences which give weightage to their feelings. The jazzy music in the new film edition enhances the overall sexual tension.
