Critics Consensus

Heavy on the sex and violence, Baise Moi is not so much a daring as a sloppy piece of work.

Movie Info

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. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Baise-Moi

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (23)

  • What we have here is a hard-core and sometimes condomed "Thelma and Louise" with a good dose of Russ Meyer's "Faster Pussycat Kill Kill" thrown in.

  • The mix of real sex and fake-looking violence in this 2000 French feature is curiously unprovocative.

  • 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.

  • Too ideologically earnest for the porn crowd and too hard-core for serious audiences.

  • The movie's only value is in unwittingly defining more clearly how played out the whole transgressing-boundaries- as-art thing has become.

  • Like an eager kid trying too hard to be noticed, it ends up just being tiresome.

    Porn Porn Porn.... I kinda have a mixed feeling toward this film, I don't know whether it's art or just porn since sex is becoming more like art in this day and age. Acting was flat, some of the shots were quite clever, rape scene was realistic. Good looking cast but I don't know if this can help the film to receive a higher rating. I loved the feminism in the film but maybe there are other ways to show it.

    There's not much to say about this movie, other than it's a fun adventure in which two crazy bitches, angry at the world, decide to forsake society and enjoy life in a purely libertine nature. Baise-Moi, or "Fuck Me" in English, is pure fun. It's not perfect, but it's really enjoyable. Plus, any girls who call themselves the "Condom-dickhead Killers" are cool by me.

    Two unlikeable women are raped, and then go around shagging, murdering and robbing innocent people. Low budget is no excuse for garbage like this. To call it a film is to insult far better films such as Battlefield Earth and Jerry Maguire. The makers clearly have the intelligence of pre-adolescent boys. It's only saving grace is that it's short. Half a star is ten stars too many. Otherwise, I loved it.

    Highly controversial french film banned in France. Basically 2 female low-lifes go on a mindless killing spree. Plenty of violence and graphic sex thrown in for good measure. One stays glued to the activity, as repulsive as it might be, to see the killers certain demise. However, the viewer seems cheated at film's end as neither character's death or capture is satisfying. Luckily, the movie clocks in at around 75 minutes. Not for the faint of heart.
