The Bait (French: L'Appât) is a 1995 French film directed by Bertrand Tavernier about two boys and a girl who commit a murder, with the girl acting as a 'bait'.

The film is based on the 1990 book of the same name by Morgan Sportès, which is in turn based on the "Valérie Subra affair", a true event that happened in 1984.[1][2][3]



The film won the Golden Bear Award at the 45th Berlin International Film Festival.[4]
