Cold turkey has got her on the run.
10 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Peter Lorre had starred in his lifetime part (M) the precedent year and anything he would do afterward would be necessary a letdown.

It is of course,although he only supports here ,playing the part of a drug trafficker,who drops his stuff into the sea when the ship docks.

The story begins in a very strange way:the hero(Pierre Murat) saves a child's life -he was getting drowned- and his father is a millionaire.The story does not seem to have any connection which what follows and you have to wait till the last pictures to see the two stories hang together-in a far-fetched way- The courageous young man comes home to be confronted with the fact that his sister has become a junkie.We think that the movie will be his struggle to help her sibling fight against addiction.Not only the girl does not look like a junkie at all -she is always fresh as a daisy- but the plot gets itself lost in uninteresting gangsters stories in which even Peter Lorre does not play his game well.

Why restoring this French-German co production ?
