Critic Reviews for Confession of a Child of the Century
The role of a beautiful and damned 19th century libertine sounds like a perfect fit for disheveled English rock poet Pete Doherty, but then there's the little matter of being able to act.
Without passion, this slight story is of no interest.
It all adds up to a curiosity, which isn't likely to make much of an impact with an incurious public.
Stunt casting has sunk this one, and Doherty should either shelve any remaining acting ambition, or invest some of his drug money in a lesson or two.
Under the direction of a film-maker who speaks little English, Doherty and Gainsbourg give flat performances, their speech uninflected, their line readings uncertain.
Audience Reviews for Confession of a Child of the Century
Pete Doherty may be great as a musician and songwriter, but as an actor he proves to be just as abysmal as this unendurable film - a sterile drama that is not only as dull as watching paint dry but also corny, artificial and painfully repetitive.
