The presumptuous Valerian soon ends up being sought after by any number of animals while the significantly more cool and gathered Laureline is accused of sparing his bacon, probably not surprisingly.
The bend this time is that, because of an innovative glitch, Valerian is likewise caught between two unique levels of reality with the greater part of his body in this present reality while his arm is stuck in the virtual universe.

There is not a solitary scene in the film that does not contain a visual worth relishing, regardless of whether it is an uncommon animal, a luxurious outfit or only a disposable peculiarity hiding in a corner. In the meantime, Besson is utilizing his visual aptitudes as a method for recounting the story rather than just serving up bits of gourmet gorgeous sight. Take the expanded early arrangement set on a rural far off planet whose smooth and radiant occupants continue on ahead before being hindered by a disastrous occasion. The scene is an underlying grabber in light of the totally lovely outline of the planet and its tenants. Be that as it may, as it goes on, we rapidly get a feeling of their identity in connection to each other and how their reality capacities without a solitary expression of discourse to clarify any of it.
