Luc Besson France, 1985

msmichel's rating of the film Subway

Besson's second film was a box office and critical hit in France but was basically a cult item in North America. A shame as it reps the genesis of Besson's visual style, themes and eccentricities. One would be hard pressed to spell out the meaning or intent here but the film is chock full of quite wonderful individual scenes especially the first rehearsal of 'the band' or Adjani's put down of a dinner party.
