The Fifth Element

Question: What's the name of the song that plays at the end of the movie, when Korben and Leeloo are in the blue chamber?

Answer: The song is "Little Light of Love, " words and music by Eric Serra (who also composed the score). Nourith provided the female backing vocals while Eric sings the song himself.

Question: Who does the voice of Finger? This has been driving me nuts for years.

Answer: General consensus is Bokeem Woodbine, although there's no official credit.

Question: In the Fifth Element who is it that removes Korben's name card from his door before Leeloo arrives?

Answer: It is the Priest (Cornelius) who rips the name card off.

Question: When the 'survivor' is brought into the lab, it appears to me to be a Mondoshewan arm holding a lever of some sort. The Mondoshewans themselves aren't the fifth element so I must be wrong. So what is it? Is it the arm of the statue seen at the start?

Answer: If you look at the statue / sarcophagus at the beginning (specifically when they are hovering it out of the tomb) you can see the hand of the 5th element is visible on the side of the statue / sarcophagus. That hand part matches what you see in the lab regen chamber. The 'lever' you see her holding is one of the handles of the case that originally held the stones (you can see the missing handle when Zorg gets the case from the mercs).

Question: What happened to the Mondoshawan trapped inside the temple at the beginning of the film? When we see the temple again towards the end of the film it isn't there anymore. Did it get out? If so, how?

Answer: The Mondoshawan died. It was moved out of the temple room by David while he was preparing for the arrival of the heroes.

Question: During the scene when the blue alien is singing at the opera, Leeloo begins her fight scene with the big aliens. She fights them one by one. Why don't the aliens simply shoot Leeloo? They all simply stand around as if they don't know what to do. One finally takes a couple shots at her and he quickly runs out of ammo. Three or more turn up and they too simply stand there as Leeloo winds up a punch for like five seconds while one big alien is standing right behind her watching the whole thing. This enitre scene never made any sense to me.

Answer: As demonstrated several times throughout the movie, that particular species isn't particularly intelligent, that they didn't do the obvious thing that you mentioned further enhances their status as being quite stupid.

Question: When Korben speaks to Finger, they state that Finger was in his unit: "...sat beside you for over a thousand missions. I know how you drive." Two questions: Who does the voice of Finger, and does that not negate the 3rd reason why Korben was chosen for the mission, that no one else in his unit survived?

Answer: 1. IMDB doesn't list anyone in the credits for the role of Finger. 2. Military members often serve in more than one unit over the course of their careers. I was in for four years and was with two different units and Korben was in for much longer. Finger and Korben could have been in a unit together then one of them transfered to a different unit later on.

Question: Right after the opera scene when Willis is getting the stones his shirt has sleeves. When he exits the opera house his sleeves are ripped off and he has blood on him. Was there a deleted fight scene?

Answer: Within the proper movie he is shown ripping his sleeves off in order to wrap the stones.

Question: I still don't know whether Leeloo is human or an alien. Can anyone explain her story for me?

Answer: Leeloo was originally human in some form; the Supreme Being label indicates that she's just an extremely advanced human. Her essence has resided on Earth for many thousands of years, but the Mondoshawans (aliens) remove her for safekeeping. She is reconstructed from the few cells remaining in the statue from the alien wreckage.

Question: Does anyone know who does the voice of Korben Dallas' mother?

Answer: Jill Mullan.

Question: When Zorg is on the phone with "Mr. Shadow", he gets very nervous and starts sweating. Then a black, gooey substance starts running down that nose...what is that?

Answer: It happens to everybody who speaks with Mr. Shadow, but it's never really explained what it is. I think it's only written something like "a brown substance" in the scenario.

Zorg: A case with four stones in it! Not one or two or three but four! Four stones! What the hell am I supposed to do with an empty case?
Aknot: We are warriors, not merchants.
Zorg: But you can still count. Look it's easy. Look at my fingers, four stones, four crates, zero stones, zero crates! Pack everything up we're outta here.
Aknot: [Mangalores raise their guns.] We risked our lives! I think a little compensation is in order.
Zorg: Oh, so you are merchants after all. Leave them one crate for the cause.

Mistakes

When the police confront Leeloo on the side of the building, she raises her hands and we can see that they're covered in soot. She jumps off and lands in Korben's cab. When she comes to, she presses her hand against the glass, and her hand is magically clean.
