London: Rocker Pete Doherty is seen enjoying a passionate kiss in the trailer of his acting debut "Confession of A Child of The Century".

However, the 33-year-old British rocker`s performance was panned at the ongoing 65th Canne International Film Festival earlier this week.

The trailer has Doherty mix up several sex scenes in the role of a libertine, who falls into depression after his mistress (Lily Cole) betrays him.

Critics have called his appearance a "calamitous miscasting" mixed with "mumbled lines" and a "permanently bored expression", reports

The Britain release date of the film is yet to be decided.
