Unique movie from 2002, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. Femme Fatale seems quite similar to other hollywood movies, you watch online from time to time, but it's really different, you'll be surprised. You'll remember many scenes and dialogues from this movie, it's a great source for memes. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. Brian De Palma is a director who stays behind all the great work and thanks to him Femme Fatale looks as it looks. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
