Interview Of Luc Besson About The Fifth Element
Basically it's the story of the age old battle between Good and Evil, but here it takes on an unusual aspect. Evil is supreme, absolute Evil. There is only one thing that bothers it : Life! Evil isn't motivated by money, power or domination; it doesn't need energy to spread itself around. Life disturbs it, smothers it and its purpose is to destroy men, women, children, animals, plants and even light. It comes into our universe every 5,000 years to wage battle - and every 5,000 years, we forget how to fight it.
