French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) broke the commercial taboo against female-driven action movies with this seminal, seductively slick film about a violent street punk (Anne Parillaud) trained to become a smooth, stylish assassin.

A young woman is arrested after her involvement in a bloody robbery and sentenced to life imprisonment. However, she is given a chance for freedom when she is offered the opportunity to become a highly trained government assassin. After three years of intensive training and a final test, she embraces her new identity in exchange for her new law-abiding lifestyle.
