In the thriller “Lucy” director brought this international team. According to him, people’s attitudes are not built through politics, but through culture and love.
«I am convinced that talent is everywhere. Talent does not need a passport, and the art does not need a visa. A huge number of Russian people love French literature. And millions of French read Russian literature. That’s why we know each other. People of our countries are very closely related to each other. Love and art in this great assistants. That’s my responsibility: to be the link between people, “- said the famous director.
Besson commented on how to find the actresses for their films. In “Nikita”, “Fifth Element”, “Leon” viewers are used to seeing strong women. Here and in the “Lucy” heroine Scarlett Johansson gets superpowers.
According to Luc Besson look feminine ideal is useless.
«I do not think that the ideal exists. If you are looking for it – will remain one. Each of us has flaws. And everyone has a great quality. I think it all depends on you – to notice the good in people or bad. So I decided to see a woman only good, “- said the director.
The inspiration for Besson was his childhood. As he confessed Frenchman, in films, he had translated many of his childhood fantasies.
«My parents were diving instructor, and I spent a childhood on the seas in different countries. I’m also going to become a diver, but because of an injury was forced to change plans. We were poor, and it’s incredibly helped develop my thinking. I picked up a stone and imagine what it is a planet out there that have a life, “- says the director.
