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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The mix of real sex and fake-looking violence in this 2000 French feature is curiously unprovocative."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"The movie's only value is in unwittingly defining more clearly how played out the whole transgressing-boundaries- as-art thing has become."
‑ Charles Savage, Miami Herald
"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."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Baise Moi is so busy showing us penises, vaginas, breasts, penetration, rape, murder and on and on that it forgets to make its points."
‑ David Poland, Hot Button
"Sex and violence. If you can't get enough of them, Baise-moi should cure you of those cravings."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"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."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Like an eager kid trying too hard to be noticed, it ends up just being tiresome."
‑ John Zebrowski, Seattle Times
"An adolescent little poseur of a movie."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"the bloody film rapes ... us raw, but the uninitiated may last through the 70 minutes before realizing it."
‑ John A. Nesbit,
"I've seen 15-minute porno loops that display more tenderness toward the human condition than this nihilistic broadside."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Too ideologically earnest for the porn crowd and too hard-core for serious audiences."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"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."
‑ Brandon Judell, indieWIRE
"Only Baise-moi's pedagogy is well defined and strident."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Baise-Moi feels so resoundingly stunning since we're so used to getting our feminine empowerment in movies fed to us in compartmentalized bits."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"The best example to date of why mainstream movies don't feature explicit sex scenes."
‑ David N. Butterworth, Movie Boeuf
