Perhaps Luc Besson actually called it “Metro”. Either way, it’s dated. Recognisable as having been stylish and kinda snappy, now it seems, though colourful, a bit loose and pointless – unless you like it that the main character, and some of his buddies, are just like that in contrast to the dulled-down drones populating the rest of the film’s world.

Purely by coincidence, it has Isabelle Adjani in it, as does Herzog’s Nosferatu.
