LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL (Luc Besson, 1994 / 110 mins / 18A) Mathilda is only 12 years old, but is already familiar with the dark side of life: her abusive father stores drugs for corrupt police officers, and her mother neglects her. Léon, who lives down the hall, tends to his houseplants and works as a hired hitman for mobster Tony. When her family is murdered by crooked DEA agent Stansfield, Mathilda joins forces with a reluctant Léon to learn his deadly trade and avenge her family's deaths. Starring Jean Reno, Natalie Portman, Gary Oldman and Danny Aiello.

«Oozing style, wit and confidence from every sprocket, and offering a dizzyingly, fresh perspective on the Big Apple that only Luc Besson could bring, this is, in a word, wonderful.» (Empire Magazine)

«Leave it to French writer-director Luc Besson to put a kinky twist on Orphan Annie and Daddy Warbucks.» (Rolling Stone)

THE FIFTH ELEMENT (Luc Besson, 1997 / 127 mins / 18A) In the 23rd century, a New York City cabbie, Korben Dallas, finds the fate of the world in his hands when Leeloo falls into his cab. As the embodiment of the fifth element, Leeloo needs to combine with the other four to keep the approaching Great Evil from destroying the world. Together with Father Vito Cornelius, and zany broadcaster Ruby Rhod, Dallas must race against time and the wicked industrialist Zorg to save humanity. Starring Milla Jovovovich, Bruce Willis, Chris Tucker, Ian Holm, and Gary Oldman.

«A movie like no other-genre defying stuff.» (Empire Magazine)

«Visually inventive and gleefully over the top, Luc Besson's THE FIFTH ELEMENT is a fantastic piece of pop sci-fi that never takes itself too seriously.» (Rotten Tomatoes)
