Anna (Sasha Luss) is a Russian model with a secret- she's an assassin for the KGB. She was recruited by Alex (Luke Evans)
and her boss is Olga (Helen Mirren). She is promised freedom after five years of service, but she finds those promises are
empty. She crosses paths with a CIA agent (Cillian Murphy). It becomes a game of cat and mouse as the story reveals more
layers as it goes on.
ANNA is one of Director Luc Besson's best action movies since LA FEMME NIKTA and LEON THE PROFESSIONAL. A great cast
and great early 1990s detail add to this action thriller with some great action scenes.
