This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Expanding on Beineix’s use of it in Diva, Luc Besson casts the Paris Metro in the lead role, transforming it into a surreal, neon-lit labyrinth littered with pop art references, and firmly establishing it as a key backdrop/ symbol synonymous with the ‘Cinema du look’ films. Making an international star of Christophe Lambert (Highlander), and introducing several key faces to the wave, including Jean Reno (The Big Blue, Nikita), and Jean-Hugues Anglade (Betty Blue, Nikita), Besson’s sleek, stylish thriller raised ‘le look’ to a whole new level.
