Storyline

Anna (Sasha Luss) is a young beautiful girl who managed to make a career in the fashion world. More recently, she was a simple model from Moscow, but in a very short time, she was able to enter the elite. Once she entered the hotel of an influential and very dangerous person, after which a whole mountain of corpses was discovered there. The girl is being interrogated by special services, but she has absolutely nothing to tell them on this fact. She looks scared, and no one suspects her. Anna goes free and begins preparing for a new business. Under the guise of a fragile beauty, is hiding the world's most dangerous assassin, who has not yet misfired.

Trivia

Writer, Producer, and Director Luc Besson was accused of sexual misconduct during production of this movie. Although no charges were filed due to lack of evidence, the studio and distributors subsequently distanced themselves from the movie, releasing it without official screenings and with only a minimum of publicity. This movie, which was supposed to be the breakthrough for model-turned-actress Sasha Luss, only made thirty million dollars worldwide, which could mean the end for Besson's EuropaCorp studio, that was already struggling from his previous box-office failure, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017).

Goofs

When Anna retrieves the CCTV recordings from the hotel security system she takes a hard drive. CCTV systems of that time would have recorded onto video tape. See more »

User Reviews

 
Much better than Atomic Blonde n Red Sparrow. Yet to c The Villainess.
23 September 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Of course the main attraction is Sasha Luss, but this film has lots of twists n turns n some decent action. Cillian Murphy n Luke Evans r lucky fellas. Comparison to La Femme Nikita is inevitable. If u like Tinkle Tailor Soldier Spy, The Double n Bridge of Spies, then u will like this too. Another good aspect bah this film is that this time they haven't shown the gloomy, sad n isolated parts of Russia but more of the urbann colorful parts.
