Description

La Femme Nikita

A Film by Luc Besson

When drug-addicted teen Nikita (Anne Parillaud) shoots a cop in a robbery gone wrong, her sentence is death. But behind prison walls, she is given a secret ultimatum: harness her penchant for violence, or face her executioner. After three years of martial arts, weapons and etiquette training, Nikita is reborn as Josephine, a sexy, sophisticated assassin, released back into normal society with instructions to build a cover life for her killer job. When she meets Marco (Betty Blues Jean-Hugues Anglade), it seems the murderous instinct of her teenage years may be behind her, but can she reconcile her new-found feelings with her deadly profession?

Featuring the legendary Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim), Tchéky Karyo (The Patriot) and Jean Reno (Ronin, Leon: the Professional) as Victor ‘the cleaner’, Luc Besson's stylish, high-voltage thriller was a world-wide cult hit on release, and has spawned numerous television and big screen spin-offs.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Nikita starts out as a callous sociopath, raging violently against the world, but she learns to get in touch with her emotions while being trained to become an unfeeling assassin. " – Jason Best
  • " Luc Besson's script and direction would prove inspirational to subsequent movies, crafting a blueprint for a number of likeminded spy yarns. " – Mike Massie
  • " A cool sensory indulgence, but irksomely lightweight. " – Rob Humanick
