When it comes to on-screen sex and violence it takes a lot to unnerve the French authorities, but Baise-Moi managed it. Three days after the film opened it was pulled from over 60 cinemas across the country, causing a major rumpus, and only allowed back after it had been reclassified X, a category normally reserved for hard-core porn. The title translates literally as "Fuck me", which pretty well sums up the brash, in-your-face style of the film.

The classification was not inappropriate, given that the film features plenty of genuine, unsimulated sex. Anyone hoping for arousal, though, might do better to look elsewhere. Baise-Moi is written and directed by Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi, working from Despentes' novel, and stars Karen Bach and Rafaella Anderson. Despentes is an ex-prostitute, while Trinh Thi, Bach and Anderson have all acted in porno movies, and what they give us here is sex as female vengeance, a screwing-and-killing rampage that turns the tables on a violent male world. The movie's been compared to Thelma and Louise, but a closer comparison might be with Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer.

As in most porno movies, the plot is the merest pretext. Nadine (Bach) is a part-time prostitute, Manu (Anderson) is a rape victim. When they meet up both have just killed, more by chance than design. On a whim they link up and take off across country, screwing and killing almost every man they meet. They kill a few women, too, just to even things up. The film's shot on crude digital video; technique is minimal and the acting is rudimentary. There's a certain raw energy that prevents the film from becoming totally depressing but the brief running time (77 minutes) comes as something of a relief. --Philip Kemp

Product Description

BAISE-MOI Manu and Nadine lose their last tenuous relationship with main-stream society when Manu gets raped and Nadine sees her only friend being shot. After a chance encounter, they embark on an explosive journey of sex and murder. Perhaps as a revenge against men, perhaps as a revolt against bourgeois society, but certainly in a negation - almost joyful in its senseless violence - of all the codes of a society which has excluded, raped and humiliated them. Controversial for its violence and real sex scenes: a vividly nihilist road movie set in France. Starring Raffaela Anderson and Karen Bach Running Time Approx 1Hr 13Mins This is a DVD Thank You

3.0 out of 5 stars Shocking 16 Jan 2006
By L. Davidson VINE VOICE
"Baise-Moi" is all about testing the boundaries of what is acceptable in mainstream (ie. non-porn) cinema . It sets out quite deliberately to shock and disgust the viewer and break as many on screen taboos as possible. It certainly achieves that and at times it has more resemblance to a hard core porn movie, featuring as it does, real, unsimulated sex scenes. Combined with a bloody killing spree unleashed by the two female protagonists , "Baise-Moi" is a film to be approached with caution by the potential viewer. It is not an ideal date film for example. Apart from trying to shock it's audience , I'm not convinced that "Baise-Moi" has anything particularly profound to convey, other than that it is understandable that some prostitutes might like to torture and murder their pick-ups. It is certainly a film that rabidly feminist men haters would enjoy. However I had mixed feelings about it; I did like the way the film went OTT in it's attempt to stretch the boundaries of acceptability, and the two female leads were particularly attractive, but for me "Baise-Moi" relied too much on gratuitous sex and extreme violence and not enough on plot and character development for it to be as enjoyable a viewing experience as ,say, "Irreversible" or "A Ma Soeur" with which it has certain similarities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, I quite liked it! 23 Sep 2005
This is an extreme film, and a glance at the many reviews on here will demonstrate that it provokes extreme reactions. All these people comparing 'Baise-Moi' to 'Thelma and Louise' and finding it wanting by comparison are missing the point. 'Baise-Moi' has much more in common with films like 'Natural Born Killers' and Rafal Sielinski's 'Fun', and viewers who won't enjoy the nasty music, nasty violence and nasty sex should stick to safe, predictable Hollywood production-line films. 'Baise-Moi' is a crude but exhilarating walk on the wild side which definitely won't be to most people's taste, and that's fine. For those with stronger stomachs, this will be a cult film to watch repeatedly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and even titillating 28 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The box doesn't actually let you in for what's inside. Nowhere does it sayon my copy that the film contains extremely graphic sex or violence, so bewarned, it contains both of those in very large quantities. The violenceis actually not that shocking since it is done quite 'cheaply' and is nottoo convincing [my copy doesn't include the gun up the bum scene] but thesex is an eye opener because you can see that it's real. There wereobviously ejaculations in the original movie because my copy just showsthe aftermath but the message of the movie was essentially that the womenare in control, which is why they choose to have loving sex with some guysand to kick the heads in of others. One of the characters is intomasturbation, she likes watching porn movies and in one scene she doesn'thave sex with a guy but gets off by watching him get off. This is indeedrole/gender reversal and the comment is made by one woman to the pornmovie watcher 'It would be okay if you were a guy'. Point taken. I don'tthink this film is crap at all, I think it's very daring and I do find thesex bits quite titillating if I'm honest. And it can't be compared to pornbecause the sex is included in a 'real' movie so it absolutely surprisesyou, whereas in a porn movie there either isn't a plot or you can spitthrough it. Either way, you're waiting for the next sex scene and in thisfilm there isn't any graphic lingering over the actual penetration likethere is in porn movies. In fact, the most lingering we see is in the oralsex scenes which these women who humiliate and kill for fun are stillhappy to perform, proving that it is the women who are in control at suchmoments, not the men. Yes, the quality isn't brilliant but that all addsto the film's character. I think if I had just turned 18 and discoveredthis, it could easily have become one of my favourite cult movies of alltime. But since I'm in my 40s, I'll just say that it was definitely worthwatching the four times I've seen it and I will watch it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uk Version Is Cut 7 April 2009
I really enjoyed this film..

Yeah it's a little bit extreme for some folks and the plot does tend to wonder a bit,but i really liked it

I didn't want to put up a whole review as there are plenty of versions out there but if you really liked this..pick up the french version.

This u.k version has been cut,and the french onehas little extra bits like the gun actually being inserted in the guy before they pull the trigger.

I prefere uncut stuff so if you wanna see the whole thang..get the french version..

3.0 out of 5 stars mixed opinion 9 Aug 2008
Baise-Moi [2002]

I watched this DVD having not realised until I had done my research, that one of the lead actresses Karen Bach had commited suicide exactly two years to the day that I watched the dvd in January 2007.

The rape scene in the early part of the movie was quite disturbing, but realistic. The first 45 mins of the movie kept my interest, with the seedy scenery, flittering camera shots and in particularly the inner city multicultural settings in Paris. (Both actresses were from a North African background) My interest changed afterwards during the last 30 minutes of this movie,where it became comical with the killing spree and chases. I wasn't sure where the producer and director of this movie was going with this at that point.
However, I respect Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi for at least having the balls to put this movie out in the first place.
