Éric Serra has composed the music for nearly everything directed by Luc Besson. His feature film collaboration with the famous French action director began in 1983 with the post-apocalyptic "Le Dernier Combat (The Last Battle)." Serra also laid down the music for such cult classics as "La Femme Nikita," a romantic thriller about a street junkie given a second chance as a government assassin, and "The Professional," the intimate portrait of a hit man and the orphaned girl he adopts. Serra had less success with American collaborators, most notably with the critically panned score for the James Bond film "GoldenEye." Nevertheless, Serra's association with Luc Besson has produced a prolific body of work, including such American films as the science fiction doomsday tale "The Fifth Element" and "The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc," a bloody account of France's most famous heretic-turned-saint. Serra has also had substantial success as a songwriter, creating original songs for the Luc Besson films "Subway," a blackmail-fueled thriller, and "The Big Blue," a tale of romance and diving.
