Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Megan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter
"As dull and cumbersome as its title."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"Pete Doherty tries his absolute best, and in some ways isn't every bit as terrible as you might think."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Doherty hints at his charisma. But for the time being, he'd be advised to stick to the strumming."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Guardian
"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."
‑ Hannah McGill, The List
"A turgidly oppressive, lifeless film that can't even be recommended to collectors of cinematic oddities."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"[Doherty] twitches, shuffles and croaks his way through every scene in a manner that put me in mind of a hungover crow."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Under the direction of a film-maker who speaks little English, Doherty and Gainsbourg give flat performances, their speech uninflected, their line readings uncertain."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Few beyond Doherty die-hards are going to need a second viewing."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"The result is dusty, drab and dreary."
‑ James Mottram, Total Film
