Luc Besson

Luc Besson is one of the most controversial figures in French cinema. Glossy, violent thrillers like the Taxi, Transporter or Taken franchises, have made him a global success. He set up the Europacorp studio and built the Cité du Cinéma film-making complex in Saint-Denis.

Yet he is hated by many of his countrymen who feel his films are too commercial. In this exclusive film, he talks openly to our cameras about his work as a director and producer and lets us into his world.
