I just purchased the Besson Movie set and watched Subway for the first time. What can I say.. I loved this movie, it's a totally immersive experience, so simple and yet so effective.. a skill so seldom seen in today's pathetic movie making "attempts".
It's so refreshing to see a director not afraid to use the film medium so efficiently to foretell a story.
