Personal: I have seen both birth and death up close and personal. We living together on this floating sphere, must understand that we have so little time for hate.

The Fifth Element (1997)
I find it AMAZING that there are so many comments for this film that unfortunately didn't do all that well in '97. I was a new mom when this movie was released in the U.S., so I missed it in the theaters. What a shame! But one of my friends saw it and told me that it was a must see. I had to wait another couple of years before finally catching it on cable and he was so right; I loved this film immediately.
I know it's campy and silly and very illogical. But those that hold it to the standard of a drama just don't get the point. It's a joyous film with themes of love, duty and courage.
The casting was superb, Milla Jovovich and Bruce Willis are a perfect match. The rest of the cast is great also; Chis Tucker and Gary Oldman are insanely funny. Oldman's funky southern accent is hilarious!
All I can say is that this movie will brighten a bad day -that alone is a testament to good movie-making.
