The first new Luc Besson movie in years and nobody takes notice?

I saw it yesterday and was quite happy with it. The story is simple, some things should have been said more subtle but what Luc Besson and his crew made out of this little, quite ordinary idea was great!
Beautifully shot b&w pictures, charming actors, many nice little ideas.
Sadly, not a second "Leon" (the story is not innovative and clever enough) but he still has it!

I saw it some months ago, but didn't think it was worth talking about.

The story and the characters are so silly and unbelieveable in my eyes. It's a film that is incredibly full of itself and self-important. Witness Jamel in the bathroom, there are times when I wanted to slap him to finally cough up what is bothering him and get to the bloody point!

I didn't think the cinematography was anything to write home about either. Shot on Color, then went through a DI to turn it into Black and White.
