Picked by Lisa, Home Entertainment Sales

Two tapes, two Parisian mob killers, one corrupt policeman, an opera fan, a teenage thief, and the coolest philosopher ever filmed. All these characters twist their way through an intricate and stylish French language thriller.

Lisa says: DIVA is the French art-house thriller this Indiana girl needed back in the 1980’s. The New Wave visual style, the chase scenes on the streets of Paris, the passion for music and the multiculturalism were unlike anything I had ever seen before. DIVA has stuck with me after all of these years as one of the films that helped to open my eyes to a world outside the mall.
