It looks like a really fun movie. Besson hasn't really let me down yet so I'm looking forward to seeing this.

It's a fairly bright and breezy adventure romp and then suddenly, the main character gets her boobs out, for no apparent reason.

Gotta love the French, lol

Well, she takes a bath, which is a bit of a running gag in the (french) comic. So it is true to the source and makes sense in context to the material.

I don't like many Besson films, but I like this one, Big Blue, and Leon a fair bit.

French aren't as uptight as us Americans. Well, at least we weren't uptight until the late 80's. Even Clash Of The Titans (1981) had a couple of boob shots for a PG rated family film.

Out of curiosity, does the Canadian release have the burned in subs of the UK?

The UK is gorgeous looking and sounding, but the subs slightly bug me, even if I don't speak the French.

Wonder how the subs will be in the US version.

The french trailer contains the bath/boobs scene. (around the 2 min. mark)

Also the french trailer is better than the Shoutfactory trailer because in it you can hear the actors speak. The Shoutfactory trailer could fool fans to think the movie is in english.

Nice! Saw this last year and have come close to importing multiple times but held off. Glad to see I can pick up the US version.

Now I've been holding off importing the two OSS117 films, hopefully we will see those as well.
Lloyd C. Cramden: Flint, How do you find time to read all these books?
Derek Flint: No, no, no, sir, I wrote those.

I may skip the August release and go for the Director's Cut.
BE KIND. IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT.

I know. Between you and me Sky Captain my exes had the decency to either bathe fully clothed or at least in a bikini. What's the world coming to women bathing in an exposed state.

I found it to be a Gem of a Film, a little all over the place at times but never less than a lot of fun.

Oh and Louise Bourgoin should be made a Bond Girl immediately, she is absolutely Beautiful.
