Baise-moi (Fuck me) is a 2000 French arthouse film directed by Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi, both of whom are involved in the adult entertainment industry, based on Despentes' novel of the same name. See the Other Wiki for info on the meaning of title.
Two women in a small southern French town, Nadine and Manu (play by pornographic actresses Karen Lancaume and Raffaela Anderson respectively), are both living disproportionately crappy lives. Nadine is a prostitute; Manu is a slacker who occasionally does porn to scrape by.
One day, things go from bad to worse when Manu and a junkie friend are gang-raped. Upon going home, Manu gets into an argument with her brother and shoots him. Nadine, at the same time, gets into a fight with and shoots her roommate, and then witnesses a drug dealer friend being killed by his associates. Manu meets Nadine and decide to elope to Paris, but not before an Ax Crazy Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
To say that this film is Banned in China doesn't do it justice. Critics for the most part weren't fond of it, either.
- Downer Ending: Manu dies at the end, and the grieving Nadine cremates her body.
- Kill'Em All: In one particularly bloody sequence, Manu and Nadine burst into a sex club and massacre the patrons.
- Recycled in Space: Thelma and Louise AS SPREE KILLERS!
- Revenge Against Men
- Road Movie
