Cinematic Greats: La Femme Nikita

Highly recommended, a masterpiece not only of French cinema but of all cinema.  Make sure you are watching the original 1990 version (also known as simply Nikita) directed by Luc Besson, starring Anne Parillaud, in French with English subtitles.  Do not confuse with the Bridget Fonda remake or the various TV interpretations.  Unfortunately, it is not available for rental — but try to get your hands on a copy.  La Femme Nikita is a great introduction to French film for those who are new to it.  10/10
