Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade.
In the original script, Mathilda (aged 13 or 14) and Léon became lovers. Luc Besson reportedly altered the script to remove this aspect of the story (possibly due to pressure from Natalie Portman's parents).
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
Many viewers believe that Stansfield never saw Leon, and therefore could not recognize him at the end, but they fail to remember that Stansfield visited Tony at the restaurant after Leon had killed part of Stansfield's crew. Thus, being intimidated and threatened by Stansfield, it must be presumed that Tony gave him a complete description of Leon, and very possibly a photograph.
