Overview
From director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) comes this "wild and irresistible" (New York Post) thriller about a vicious street punk turned sexy, sophisticated and lethally dangerous assassin. Starring Anne Parillaud, Jeanne Moreau and Jean Reno, La Femme Nikita is "slick, stylish and tremendously entertaining" (The New York Times)!

Rescued from death row by a top-secret agency, Nikita (Anne Parillaud) is slowly transformed from a cop-killing junkie into a cold-blooded bombshell with a license to kill. But when she begins the deadliest mission of her career – only to fall for a man who knows nothing of her true identity – Nikita discovers that in the dark and ruthless world of espionage, the greatest casualty of all...is true love.
