Her 2015 film Mon roi was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Maïwenn met film director Luc Besson when she was 12 and they began dating when she was 15.


She achieved international recognition when her third film, the social drama Polisse (2011), won the Jury Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. All three films feature Maïwenn with a camera, stemming from a childhood fascination and her interest in the mise en abyme, the story within a story.


Her second film was Le bal des actrices (2009, All About Actresses), in which she appears as herself making a documentary.


In 2006, she directed her first feature film, the semi-autobiographical Pardonnez-moi. According to Maïwenn, after Besson learned she planned to use her own money to produce the film, he told her "You need to immediately stop what you're doing. You're crazy. Nobody puts their own money into a movie. " After seeing the film he apologized, saying she was right on this occasion.


By the time the film came out in 2003, she had decided she wanted to try directing.


Perhaps Maïwenn's most internationally-seen film role was her appearance as the alien Diva Bazina in Besson's The Fifth Element (1997). After her breakup with Besson, Maïwenn returned to France. She performed as a standup comedian in an autobiographical one-woman-show, and reentered the movie business after several filmmakers saw her comedy routine in Paris. She appeared in several notable movies, including the horror film Haute Tension (English title: High Tension), in which she starred opposite Cécile de France.


She was 20 at the beginning of filming (early 1996) for The Fifth Element, during which Besson left her for the film's star, Milla Jovovich.


During this period, she only appeared in a supporting part in Besson's Léon (1994), in which she was credited as Ouin-Ouin. She also directed the film's making-of.

On the DVD extras for the 1994 film Léon: The Professional, Maïwenn said the film is based on her relationship with Besson.


Following her marriage to director Luc Besson and the birth of their daughter in 1993, Maïwenn interrupted her career for several years.

In January 1993, at age 16, she gave birth to their daughter Shanna.


Maïwenn starred in several films as a child, then teen, actress-notably as "Elle, as a child" (the child version of the lead role played by Isabelle Adjani) in the 1983 hit film L'été meurtrier (One Deadly Summer).
