Querelle is a 1982 West German-French English-language drama film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and starring Brad Davis, adapted from French author Jean Genet's 1947 novel Querelle of Brest. It marked Fassbinder's final film as a writer/director; it was posthumously released just months after the director's death in June 1982.
Querelle is set in the Atlantic port town of Brest, where its protagonist, Georges Querelle, is a bisexual thief, prostitute and serial killer who manipulates and kills his lovers for thrills and profit. Cocteau's drawings do not specifically illustrate Genet's narrative, but convey the general themes of the novel.
