Les Anges Exterminateurs (English: The Exterminating Angels) is a 2006 French film directed by Jean-Claude Brisseau. It was screened at the Cannes Film Festival on 20 May 2006 and had a limited release in the United States on 7 March 2007. The film is about a director named François who embarks on a film project about female eroticism. He meets three struggling actresses who perform sexual acts in front of him. What François does not realise is that there is a lot more going on in the girls' heads than other parts and this leads to tragic consequences.

The film is semiautobiographical: in 2002 director Brisseau had been arrested on charges of harassment, fined and given a suspended one-year prison sentence. The plaintiffs were three women who had performed sexual acts in front of him during their audition.[1]

The soundtrack for the film was composed by Jean Musy.
