An assassin caught between the KGB and the CIA plays the two against each other in an attempt to reclaim her life in ANNA; a sophisticated and satisfying action-thriller written and directed by Luc Besson.
ANNA POLIATOVA (Sasha Luss) is discovered by a modeling scout while selling tchotchkes at a craft market and is whisked off to Paris where she becomes an instant sensation in the fashion world. But behind her exquisite exterior, Anna has a deadly secret - she is a KGB-trained assassin. Recruited after her abusive, thieving boyfriend is killed by agent ALEXEI TCHENKOV (Luke Evans), she was given a choice: spend five years as a Soviet operative or join her late lover.
Using her striking looks to gain access to her targets, Anna becomes a top asset for her handler, OLGA (Helen Mirren), but as the end of her five-year agreement comes closer, she learns the KGB has no intention of honoring it. When CIA agent LENNY MILLER (Cillian Murphy) tries to force her to work as a double agent, Anna hatches a plan that could free her from both - or get her killed. Knowing that each of her contacts is prepared to betray her, setting the two against each other will require every bit of her brains, her sex appeal and her assassin's skills to succeed.
Startling plot twists, breath-taking action and unexpected double crosses propel a smart, stylish espionage thriller set in the glittering world of high fashion.
