1990, Sony Repertory, 118 min, France, Dir: Luc Besson

After killing a policeman in a botched robbery, junkie Nikita (Anne Parillaud) is sentenced to life in prison. But a secret government agency fakes her death in order to turn Nikita into a professional assassin - a role she plays with remarkable skill. Jeanne Moreau and Jean Reno costar in the original French hit, which inspired an American remake (POINT OF NO RETURN) and TV series. In French and Italian with English subtitles.
