On improvising a burglary at a shady tycoon's home, Fred takes refuge in the hip and surreal universe of the Paris Metro and encounters its assorted denizens, the tycoon's henchmen and his disenchanted young wife.
A French cop gets 2 months leave for getting results too violently. His Japanese girlfriend, who vanished 19 years ago, has died and he flies Paris to Tokyo for her funeral and will full of surprises. The Yakuza meets his brutal ways.
An urgent life-or-death dilemma befalls Nikita--the feral street girl and violent drug addict--after killing a police officer at point blank. Hopeless, Nikita is given a new lease of life, when she reluctantly exchanges her doomed fate for a secret government program that promises to mould her into a cold-blooded assassin under the wing of her sadistic mentor, Bob. Now--with a new set of skills, a new identity, and lethally sophisticated looks--Nikita is the ultimate weapon and the perfect puppet for doing the government's dirty work; however, what happens if this trained killer chooses love over death?Written by
I saw this film when I was young (12 years old maybe) and I simply loved it. We are following the story of this unruly woman who is trying to do better in a world that is not necessarily that friendly. All the actors are excellent, showing a great strength and sensitivity at the same time.
As in most films by Luc Besson, there is a dark sense of humor that could ´speak´ even to the young.
