French 171-Fall 2005. Session 8. WORKSHEET 8 Nikita (1990) By Luc Besson I Film summary and a review: Summary: Internationally acclaimed director Luc Besson delivers a tour de force with his action- packed story of Nikita (Anne Parillaud), a ruthless street junkie whose killer instincts could make her the perfect weapon. Recruited against her will into a secret government organization by a sadistic man known only as Bob, Nikita is broken and remade. In three years, Bob transforms her into a sexy, sophisticated 'lethal weapon' named Josephine. Released from the training compound, Nikita is caught in a web of intrigue and murder- trapped in a double life as Marco's lover and Bob's hired gun. The thrilling provocative climax makes La Femme Nikita one of the most shocking and intelligent espionage adventures ever.
