Plot & Details
Manu (Raffaela Anderson) shoots a man with his own gun and runs off with his money. Later that night, she makes the acquaintance of Nadine (Karen Bach), a woman whose clean-cut appearance belies the fact that she has recently strangled her overbearing roommate. Somewhat unsurprisingly, given their mutual taste for homicide, the two women quickly become kindred spirits and decide to spend some wacky time together until "the 13th," when Nadine has to keep an appointment. Lots of sex, violence, and dead men follow, as do the police, who are breathing down the women's necks like an overly persistent bad date. Baise-Moi was a hit in France, where it endured a ratings controversy due to its extremely graphic content. All of the sex acts in the film were performed by its actors, most of whom had extensive experience in the adult entertainment industry.
