Manu and Nadine are two women from different worlds, but fate will bring them together on a bloodbath ride to change their destinies.
When Manu is brutally [abused] she is pushed over the edge with a rage that only killing will cure.
Nadine is a tough-skinned prostitute with a hate for herself and what she has become.
A chance encounter brings the two women together and what ensues is a road trip filled with sex, and blood-shed ultimately forcing the two to question what life has in store for them, and if life is worth living.
Going further into the plot of this movie would be difficult for there is not much to say other than it is VERY SEXUALLY EXPLICIT. The film is a lot like `Thelma And Louise' the only two differences are:
it's in French, and the sex scenes are that of porno films.
Many might be offended by the graphic nature of this film, but the director chose to be hard-core to show the brutal life these women lead. Using men for sex, and then either discarding them or killing them Manu and Nadine enact their revenge for a world they feel has made them monsters.
The two main characters are played by veterans of the French adult film industry, so it should come as no surprise how graphic this movie is, and if anyone is looking for a sexy, erotic film look elsewhere because this isn't it...this movie is a tough and serious depiction of two twisted women on a rage-filled journey into madness.
NOT FOR EVERYONE!

"Baise-Moi" is a French film in the grand tradition of notable director Gaspar Noe, the creator of such nihilistic cinematic nightmares as "I Stand Alone" and "Irreversible." In fact, in one scene in this film a character watches a scene from "I Stand Alone" on a television set. One wonders about Noe's reaction to "Baise-Moi." Was he flattered? Intrigued? Inspired to make more movies that might motivate others to create their own brand of extreme cinema? If anything, this film probably shocked the director. Certainly "I Stand Alone" and "Irreversible" are two very difficult films to watch let alone think about, but "Baise-Moi" beats both of them when it comes to sexual situations and disturbing violence. The writer and director of this film are both involved in the European adult film industry, if that tells you anything. Moreover, most of the actors in the picture work in that field as well. After watching this film, I know its appeal to a mass audience will be extremely limited. That's not to say the movie is nothing more than a pastiche of over the top scenes, as "Baise-Moi" most definitely conveys a serious message. Whether that message is original (it's not), or is more effective when portrayed in such an extreme manner, is open to debate.

The movie tells the story of two lower class French women named Manu (Raffaela Anderson) and Nadine (Karen Lancaume). Manu is a wanderer, a lost soul prowling the gritty French streets side by side with drug dealers, harridans, and other assorted riff raff. One day the young girl and a friend encounter a gang of unruly, menacing toughs with only one thing on their minds. After consummating the horrific act, shown in truly nauseating close up, Manu's embitterment about her life and her surroundings grows exponentially.

The film's title does not, translated directly, mean "Rape Me", but "... Me", and the two protagonists do plenty of that in between bouts of violence that probably got this film banned in its country of origin (the French are less tolerant of cinematic bloodshed than of sex).This violence includes an upsetting rape scene, shocking rather than educative as to that horrible crime, which might be what motivates one of the victims' teaming with a prostitute (Catherine Bach)to indulge in casual sex and violence, done with a vulgar amorality which works if only because their portrayals, and situations, seem caricaturish. "Baise-moi" is filmed in grainy, uncomplimentary colours, showing a France different from the one seen by tourists and even viewers of French cinema. The film in neither likeable nor dull, and certain scenes remain in the mind afterward.

Spoilers Alert (Just a warning)!!!

Controversial. Explicit. Uncut. In your face! All true? Big yes. I feel it lives up to all the hype!

Two women kill - separately - two people and they decide to run. They meet at the train station and find out there are no trains going anywhere at that time of the night. They steal a car and go together and leave a trail of destruction behind them.

Combine this with explicit sex (even porn), lots of ultra violence and you've got a clear picture of Baise-Moi. The most controversial thing about this film are the sex-scenes, which are - at times - hardcore. I admire the fact the makers had the guts to film them and even let it pass in the editing room, but I have a suspicious feeling they did it just for the effect (and I'm glad they let it pass the editing room).

The violence is also explicit and sometimes gory. But ladies, nouvelle violence died about seven years ago. They also discuss the fact they should say something cool whenever they kill people. But somehow they never manage to really say anything important, to make a statement. Okay, they are both on the run and one of them was raped earlier in the film, but they never give a clear motivation for the killing. Is it they want to have revenge on "all the men"? Well, later in the film, in a sex-club, they also kill women?

If you look beside the controversy you can see that this a great movie, an evil Thelma and Louise. People should get out of the house more often (watch movies other than the main stream). Enjoy folks.....
