"Dazzling!Wildly Seductive And Erotic!"-Rolling Stone

From celebrated French director Luc Besson, this high-energy, inventive, mesmerizing film is "slick, stylish and tremendously entertaining" (The New York Times)!A riveting, rapid-paced and action packed tale that follows a cop-killer junkie turned glamorous assassin, La Femme Nikita is "a razor sharp thriller for both the mind and the eyes" (Boxoffice).

Wildly violent, borderline psychopathic Nikita (Anne Parillaud) is a street punk who'll do anything for a fix - even murder a cop at point blank.But Nikita is given a second chance...at killing!Confined to a clandestine government training center for assassins, Nikita is transformed into a calculating bombshell with a license to kill!But when the reinvented operative is finally unleashed onto the real world, her hardened exterior is penetrated by a man with whom she falls deeply in love.Now Nikita must choose between the deceitful, complicated maneuverings of her dual identity - or the life-threatening mission that will shape her destiny forever!
