When we had the pleasure of sitting down with renowned French director Luc Besson, he admitted his frustrations at those taking his latest picture Lucy, at face value. The film, which stars Scarlett Johansson in the title role, tells the story of a woman who miraculously unlocks her mind’s full potential, and there has been criticism in regards to the scientific aspect of this production.

Besson is quick to point out this movie is just fiction, as he also discusses with us what it was like working alongside Johansson, and why this particular endeavour – which has been with him for over 10 years – is one that he chose to direct.

Lucy is released on August 22nd, and you can read our review of the film here.
