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

At 4:05, the statue of Charles de Gaulle on the square of his name, erected by Zurab Tsereteli in front of the Cosmos Hotel in Moscow, is shown with a title "Moscow, Nov 1990". The square was renamed to Charles de Gaulle square in 1990 indeed, however, that statue was only erected in 2005. See more »

User Reviews

 
Stylish and Wild Action Film with a Rather Weak but Fun Plot
16 October 2019 | by danew13See all my reviews

Not as well written as his Nikita, but Besson keeps the body count flowing in Anna with far greater numbers. Much of the film keeps you guessing and then answers with several flashback scenes.

Some of the wild action is on the outrageous level of a Bruce Willis Die Hard film. but just as enjoyable. The lead Sasha Luss does a decent job as Anna the assassin.
