From having seen the advance poster, which depicted a woman aboiut eight feet tall standing next to a normal sized man on a Paris street, I’d thought this film was going to be some kind of partially-animated film like Sin City, but here’s the trailer and it is live action. And the woman is still eight feet tall. This is Luc Besson’s final film if he keeps to his promise that he won’t direct any more films, which is a shame because he’s quite good (La Femme Nikita, Leon, The Fifth Element, The Big Blue). Unfortunately he did not promise to stop producing shitty films like District-13.
Looks like a cross between Wim Wenders’ classic black and white angel film Wings of Desire and Besson’s own action flick Nikita. But on a low budget. And without Wenders’ ambition. But I hope it might be ok. I am unsure of when to expect it in the US; it has already been in theaters and on DVD in Europe. Official website (click).
