Published some months after release, this is Besson's account of the making of the film, from its incarnation as a novel in 1975 to its eventual realisation as a 100 million dollar block buster in 1997. The book gives the full story, not only of the production period, but of its premiere as the opening film of the 50th Cannes Festival.
