THE FIFTH ELEMENT
1997, Sony Repertory, 126 min, France, Dir: Luc Besson

Writer-director Luc Besson dreamed up the amazing world of THE FIFTH ELEMENT while in his teens, later turning it into one of the most expensive (and successful) blockbusters ever produced in France. Bruce Willis is flying his taxi through 23rd-century New York City when reconstructed humanoid Milla Jovovich drops into it; she and four stones from ancient Egypt are the only things that can stop an evil power - and its emissary, Gary Oldman - bent on Earth’s destruction. Bursting with eye-popping special effects, costumes and production design, this is an over-the-top sci-fi thrill ride from start to finish!
