Luc Besson took 9 years to create the script for this film. One of the main themes driving this movie is the myth that humans only use 10% of their brains, when in reality it is much more complicated. Luc Besson has stated that he was fascinated by the complexity and mysteries of the human brain, which was inspiration for the film. Although the film was not well reviewed, and did not do particularly well in the United States, it was still the most successful French movie in decades outside of France.
