The ambassador's daughter
16 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Jane Birkin is supposed to be this girl from a good background but we know it just because the cop (Gabrielle "Avventura" Ferzetti) tells us so.

The film was produced by Andrée Debar ,an actress of the fifties who had a strange androgynous look.Why she stopped acting remains a mystery as why Serge Gainsbourg stopped singing and writing to play such a poor part in a hackneyed movie.At least he wrote the score and the cast and credits song,which are much too good for a director who leaves his actors to their own devices.

"This is not a movie about drugs " a line reads at the beginning ;it's a love film,an action-packed film...As far as the love film is concerned ,we have good-looking Jane Birkin naked every ten minutes;as for the action,highlights are ,so to speak,a chase on the roof of the opera -without a phantom- and a massacre in a chicken farm.

"Cannabis " is a relic of the late sixties,which would be forgotten,weren't it for the legendary Birkin/Gainsbourg lovers who fortunately knew better times.
