Sex and shooting assault the senses in Baise-moi, released on DVD on 25th March 2013 by Arrow Video, a bloody buddy movie that's like Thelma and Louise on acid. Banned on release in France, the film has provoked as much horror as it has debate.
Manu - a part time porn star - and Nadine - a hooker - set out to leave their town for Paris after witnessing and being subject to rape and violence. They rage against societal expectations in a fury of robbery, orgiastic lust and murder.
Directed by Virginie Despentes, Coraline Trinh Thi and starring Raffaëla Anderson, Karen Lancaume and Céline Beugnot, one of the most controversial movies of the last 20 years, Baise-moi was described as the most sexually explicit film to ever reach British screens by the UK press, the film offers the complacent viewer a cinematic slap in the face.
