Arrow Video’s outrageous and completely uncut version of Baise-moi (2000) will be released on DVD for the very first time this Monday (25 March). One of the most controversial French films ever made, this highly anticipated release also marks the first time that Virginie Despentes and Coralie’s cult classic will be available in widescreen format. To celebrate this new Baise-moi rerelease, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE DVD copies of the film to offer our readership, courtesy of the hardworking guys and gals at Arrow. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Exploring themes of gender, race, rape, class, poverty and punk rock, Despentes and Coralie’s Baise-moi follows part-time porn star Manu (Raffaëla Anderson) and prostitute Nadine (Karen Lancaume), as they travel from southern France to Paris in a sexually charged and hideously violent road trip. After a chance meeting the pair bond over a mutual hatred of social expectation and a feeling of common angst – follow them on their now infamous path of robbery, orgiastic lust and murder.
