In this article in The Guardian on London’s winning Olympic bid, the newspaper gives a mini-review to a new film by Luc Besson:

“Earlier, Paris had been the first to address the IOC. The French attempted to match their audience, using exclusively white middle-aged men to deliver their message, culminating in a plea from President Jacques Chirac.

Even a promo film directed by Luc Besson seemed staid, featuring enough talking heads to suggest the great auteur has a future in corporate videos should the Hollywood commissions end.

It was unspectacular, but many believed it still might be good enough to deliver the games, particularly after New York, Madrid and Moscow delivered no surprises.”
