Nikita (La Femme Nikita)
1990
***
Director: Luc Besson
Cast: Anne Parillaud, Jean-Hugues Anglade, Jean Reno, Jeanne Moreau

Luc Besson’s entertaining and visually arresting but not terribly believable action film tells a story of a junkie who is reformed into a top government assassin. Remade in Hollywood as The Point of No Return / The Assassin.
