When drug-addicted teen Nikita (Anne Parillaud) shoots a cop in a robbery gone wrong, her sentence is death. But behind prison walls, she is given a secret ultimatum: harness her penchant for violence, or face her executioner. After three years of martial arts, weapons and etiquette training, Nikita is reborn as Josephine, a sexy, sophisticated assassin, released back into normal society with instructions to build a cover life for her killer job. When she meets Marco (Betty Blue’s Jean-Hugues Anglade), it seems the murderous instinct of her teenage years may be behind her, but can she reconcile her new-found feelings with her deadly profession?. Featuring the legendary Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim), Tchéky Karyo (The Patriot) and Jean Reno (Ronin, Leon: the Professional) as Victor “the cleaner”, Luc Besson’s stylish, high-voltage thriller was a world-wide cult hit on release, and has spawned numerous television and big screen spin-offs..
