Happy 57th Birthday Luc Besson! (18th March 1959)
“For me it’s: have you done the best that you can. If the answer is ‘yes’, you can sleep with dignity. You can go to bed and say, “I’m happy. I did my best.” You know sometime when you start the film that it’s not going to be huge and popular, because the subject is not. The subject is more intimate and it’s different. It’s in black and white. You know you are not going to have a large audience. For me it doesn’t matter so much. As long as the audience is thrilled.”
— Luc Besson, French director, writer, and producer, with notable works such as Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element, The Transporter series, and Lucy.
