Rating: C+ -- Coarse, rough-hewn and rather unsophisticated, cinematically speaking, Baise Moi nonetheless succeeds largely on its gritty realism. It's a cinematic jab to the solar plexis. Full Review

Baise Moi is so busy showing us penises, vaginas, breasts, penetration, rape, murder and on and on that it forgets to make its points. Full Review

Rating: C -- Baise-Moi is like a cheapie, vintage American exploitation movie, only one that goes so far beyond the bounds of taste that its affrontiveness becomes in large part what the film is about.

Rating: 0/5 -- I've seen 15-minute porno loops that display more tenderness toward the human condition than this nihilistic broadside. Full Review

...Virginie Despentes crafts a punky, doomy thrashabout that soars above its exploitation roots with resonant, gritty visuals, guerilla pluck and an unflinching focus...

Product Description:

BAISE-MOI, based on the controversial novel written by codirector Virginie Despentes, is a vivid and brutal reality-based exploration of two women's attempts to reclaim their sexual power. Real-life porn stars Raffaela Anderson and Karen Bach star as the film's THELMA AND LOUISE-style anti-heros. Manu (Raffaela Anderson), a porn actress, is the victim of a violent gang rape, depicted graphically in the first fifteen minutes of the film, that fills her with internal rage and violent aggression. She sets out on a road trip and meets Delphine (Karen Bach), a drug-addled former prostitute with an aggressive streak. Delphine and Manu join forces and begin on a revenge-fueled sexual rampage, seducing and killing with reckless abandon. Delphine and Manu are furious and empowered by their sexual prowess; they wield their guns and lingerie-clad bodies like true professionals. Adrenaline drives their killing spree, set to a pounding punk rock score, and murder becomes implicitly linked to sexual gratification. Directors Virginie Despentes (a former prostitute) and Coralie Trinh Thi (a former porno actress) shot the film in gritty digital video at a fast-paced reckless clip of 76 minutes, heightening the acute sense of urgency and nihilistic desperation of the two women. Despentes and Trinh Thi blur the lines between cinema and reality and delve into the dark recesses of female psychology. By shooting real hard-core sex scenes and employing former porn actresses, they create a compelling and daring film that sets the conventional notions of female sexual appetite on end.
