The Red Siren (French: La sirène rouge) is a 2002 French criminal thriller film based upon the novel by same name by Maurice G. Dantec. The film was directed by Olivier Megaton from a script by Olivier Megaton, Alain Berliner, Norman Spinrad, and Robert Conrath.


The film tells the story of Alice (Alexandra Negrão) who confesses to a detective named Anita (Asia Argento) that her mother Eva (Frances Barber) is a dangerous killer. Eva is also a very powerful and wealthy leader of a vast crime syndicate. She discovers that her daughter met with the police and tries to stop her. Unbeknownst at first to both Anita and Eva, Alice escapes from France and leaves for Portugal to reunite with her supposedly dead father. Eva's henchmen chase after her. Alice meets a mercenary while escaping, Hugo (Jean-Marc Barr), who then joins Alice as her protector on her journey to find her father. Anita travels after her, as well. After Eva's henchmen close in, Eva reappears to "reclaim" her daughter.
