About

"... the only film by the famed French writer Jean Genet. Based on his novel OUR LADY OF THE FLOWERS, it depicts the fantasy of a gay male prisoner and that of his jailer. It was originally intended for private collectors and limited audiences. While strongly indebted to Jean Cocteau's BLOOD OF A POET, it has influenced such diverse filmmakers as Robert Bresson and Kenneth Anger." –Amy Taubin, press release for December 17, 1983 program, The Kitchen, New York City
