Luc Besson is considered one of the hottest international properties to emerge from the new wave of French film directors in the 1980s. His films represent the conflicts and tensions of a postmodern age, and are perceived as signs of their times. This is a study of Besson's film-making career to date, placing the films within their socio-historical and political context. It investigates the interface between technology and the body, along with the environments in which the violent interactions between them are played. The absence of family and the demise of community are also explored.
