WATCH: Helen Mirren and Luke Evans talk about their new spy film

Cape Town - From writer-director Luc Besson comes the stylish espionage thriller Anna in SA cinemas on Friday, 21 June

Plucked from a Russian street market Anna (Sasha Luss) is transformed into one of Paris' top models. 

Much like Besson's hugely influential La Femme Nikita - Anna tells the story of a resilient assassin who is used as a pawn but then breaks all the rules to control her own destiny.

Helen Mirren plays Anna's mentor Olga, and Luke Evans plays KGB recruiter Alex.

In the video above Helen shares her fascination with spies and Luke tells us more about his character.
