Storyline

Serge Morgan is a killer working for the American Mafia. After performing a contract in New York for his employers, he takes the plane back to Paris and, during the flight, he gets to know Jane, the rich daughter of an ambassador. Once in Orly Airport he gets seriously wounded by the men of French drug kingpin Henri Emery. He manages to escape them though and takes refuge at Jane's. Passion sets in between the killer and the young lady. As of then, sex will be intertwined with blood and death. For better or worse... Written by Guy Bellinger

Stunning visuals wasted on a story we've seen too often
8 April 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie had a lot of potential: a great cast including Curd Juergens, Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, and outstanding qualities in cinematography and editing. I have seen few films with so many intense close-ups and surprising cuts. Unfortunately, the movie has no story to tell. It is just another gangster movie with everybody being everybody else's enemy. "Cannabis" could have become a weird, more outrageous, experimental and revolutionary version of Melville's "Le Samourai", but the movie ends up as a failure, albeit a visually stunning one.
