Ein Liebeslied (also Ein Liebesgesang ) is a short film by Jean Genet from 1950. It could not be shown publicly because of its pornographic sequences, and Jean Genet later distanced himself from his work.


Two inmates try to come into contact through a tiny hole in the wall between their cells - observed and sanctioned by a jealous prison guard.
