Nikita ( La Femme Nikita )

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. Rescued from death row and confined to a clandestine government training center for assassins, Nikita is slowly 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 (Jean-Hughes Anglade) with whom she falls deeply in love and 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. From celebrated French director Luc Besson ("Leon: The Professional"), this inventive and stylish thriller co-stars Tcheky Karyo, Jean Reno and Jeanne Moreau. Remade as "The Assassin" (a.k.a. "Point of No Return") with Bridget Fonda.
