    The TV series of it launched JJ Abrams, giving him the chance for Lost. Rest is history.

    Edit: thanks to who pointed out I was thinking of Alias. Joel Surnow did the TV show of this and then 24. (edited)

    Do you mean Alias?

    Absolutely brilliant film, one of my favourites. Its far better than the The American remake point of no return or The Assassin as it's known in Europe. Which is still watchable, but just not quite as good after seeing this first.

    Anne Parillaud is amazing in this and still looks good today at 63! I also really liked her in the really cheesey American film, Innocent blood. Where she plays a Vampire (bite me baby). (edited)

    Brilliant movie. Never tried the US version, but can’t imagine it has the class of the original.

    I really wouldn't bother. It's not great.

    Agree, a great movie (subtitles for the non-french speaking though!).

    Brilliant film - never seen it but it's Luc Besson so it will be.

    I feel gross watching anything by Luc the groomer Besson

    Yeah I think it's one of those scenarios it's ok to appreciate his films and also the talented cast and crew he brings in to make them, but you don't have to be ok with him as a person. Admittedly I don't know much about his relationships apart from his numerous wives always seem to be young actresses from his movies.

    A classic film, stylish and well acted

    ...and Jean Reno, as a 'cleaner' few years before Leon.

    Just to ditto the others, great film providing you're ok with foreign language, and it being older and low budget (ish). I just started getting into my 90's foreign language indie type films again like Run Lola Run, Taxi, etc.

    Bit of a bummer reading about accusations of rape and sexual misconduct from a director I've always enjoyed.
