Élisa is a French film directed by Jean Becker and starring Gérard Depardieu and Vanessa Paradis. It was released in 1995.


Élisa is a teenage girl living a semi-criminal life on the streets of Paris with her friends. Her mother, suffering from a deep depression, tried to kill little Élisa when she was very young and subsequently committed suicide, while her father has never been part of her life. One day she decides to take revenge on her father for not helping her when she lost her mother. But when she finds him she realises that she cannot kill her own father, at least not before he has had the chance to explain...

Serge Gainsbourg received a César Award for Best Music Written for a Film for Élisa, along with Zbigniew Preisner and Michel Colombier.
