New on Kamera: Un Chant d'amour

Rare viewing opportunity alert!: we have just unburied from Google Video's archives Jean Genet's Un Chant d'amour (France, 1950, 26'), a very lyrical (and simultaneously rough around the edges) take on homoeroticism that must have inspired the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Read more here.

Speaking of French cinema, our friends at Greencine have a great interview with French director Catherine Breillat, whose new film, Une Vieille Meitresse (The Last Mistress, 2007) was recently shown at the 2008 San Francisco film festival. Breillat is a member of that small club, the female film director, but she certainly makes up for this imbalance in the film industry with some ballsy pictures.
