Dir: Luc Besson
Star: Anne Parillaud, Jean-Hugues Anglade, Tchéky Karyo, Jeanne Moreau

[8] After the big yawn of The Big Blue, Besson goes back to his Subway roots with this thriller, which could easily be titled Assault of the French Killer Bimbos on Smack for the video market, tho' to be honest there's only one bimbo (Parillaud). Her death is faked by the government, who train her as an assassin and then let her hang around for months between hits. Very stylish, as you'd expect, very blue (in the colour sense - the nipple count, at one, is the lowest in ages for a French movie), a little overlong at 116 minutes and nicely violent with a warped twist, as with the government's 'cleaner' who carries a case of sulphuric acid around to help tidy up the corpses...
