THE FIFTH ELEMENT Cigarette Dispenser 4 A DAY

Welcome to the fifth element 4-A-DAY Cigarette dispenser webpage!!  This whimsical background prop, to me, epitomizes the entire film.  It's a farce, a comment on society.  Surreal and colorful with it's ridiculously filtered cigarettes.

This is a lifesized replica of of one of my fave props from the movie.  It's seen in every scene taking place in Korben's apartment.  And now you too can have a 4-A-DAY device on your wall.  Enjoy:
