The interview feels a bit unfocused and all over the place for the large portion of the film and the filmmaker doesn't seem to have come for it with a clear plan, it’s more like he just asks Genet what pops into his head and then lets Genet take over and talk himself which actually isn't too bad in this particular case because the main focus here is not the film itself, rather the subject matter, the wonderful Genet.
The bit with Giacometti was worth the entire film... However, there is one sensation this film created that trumped all other sensations that swept through me during its viewing. I was charged with an enchantment I haven't felt in 12 years, when I watch Michelangelo's L'eclipse for the first time. Jean Genet has a face and cadence that strikes the very core. And Bourseiller knows just what to focus on.
