"La Femme Nikita"
Directed by Luc Besson
A stylish punk
thriller from director Luc Besson (Subway, The Big Blue) in which a
French street junkie (played by the beautiful Anne Parillaud) is arrested
and threatened with life imprisonment. She is then allowed to leave if she
agrees to go to work for the French secret police as an assassin. This
suspenseful film is highlighted by Besson's stylishly decorous visual
compositions and innate sense of dramatic pacing. Also starring Tcheky
Karyo and Jeanne Moreau. French with English subtitles.
