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.

Luc Besson looks back at the struggles he had to content with, way back in 1975, when the idea for the movie was conceived, and the first 200 pages of the script thrown away because it was too verbose, self-indulgent. The book highlights all sorts of challenges of producing a film and makes for a great read. There are many interesting stories from casting to the creation of sets. There are interviews with fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, production designer Dan Weili, artists Jean-Claude Mezieres and even Moebius.
The latter part of the book collects the concept art for the characters, costumes and the spaceships. All pretty cool to look at.
The book's a great read but will probably appeal more to fans of the movie.

Fifth Element is one of my favorite films, and this book goes really well with it.
