Adapted from the French comic Valérian & Laureline, it is a futuristic and epic tale about the future of mankind, with a feminist twist: “The first woman I fell in love with was probably Laureline,” said the French director. “She was totally free and badass, and ... was a very modern heroine at the time.”.
