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.
