Pouvez-vous dire le "plein plat"?*

It's the second post this week with a French title! And I don't speak French at all!

At Roger Ebert's suggestion, I took a look at the IMDb page for Luc Besson, and he's right - Besson is the hardest working man in show business. For 2005 and 2006 alone, this is what he's been involved with:

  1. Dunsinane (2005: producer)
  2. Flora Plum (2005: producer)
  3. Spécial police (2005: producer)
  4. Quand j'étais chanteur (2006: producer)
  5. Love and Other Disasters (2006: executive producer)
  6. Arthur and the Minimoys (2006: producer)
  7. "Valérian et Laureline" TV Series (2006: producer)
  8. Dikkenek (2006: executive producer, uncredited)
  9. Filles du botaniste chinois, Les (2005: co-producer, uncredited)
  10. Boîte noire, La (2005: producer)
  11. Bunker paradise (2005: associate producer)
  12. Colour Me Kubrick (2005: co-producer)
  13. Bandidas (2006: producer)
  14. The Secret (2006: producer, executive producer)
  15. Angel-A (2005: producer)
  16. Revolver (2005: co-producer)
  17. Transporter 2 (2005: producer)
    ... aka Transporteur II, Le (France)
  18. Au suivant! (2005: associate producer, co-producer, uncredited)
  19. Imposture (2005: producer)
  20. Souffleur, Le (2005: co-producer)
  21. Ze film (2005: co-producer)
  22. Danny the Dog (2005: producer)
    ... aka Danny the Dog (Hong Kong: English title)
    ... aka Unleashed (USA)
  23. Tres entierros de Melquiades Estrada, Los (2005: executive producer)
    ... aka The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (International: Spanish title)
    ... aka Trois enterrements de Melchiades Estrada, Les (France)
I get the feeling that in his off time, he watches the 8,136 TV shows executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
