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 a 2005 interview, Natalie Portman recalled how she had to train herself to "cry on cue" during filming. For her first emotional scene - when Mathilda finds her family dead and goes to Léon's door for help - she was unable to produce the necessary tears. Luc Besson solved... ...
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
When Leon comes to the room he has blood on his right hand. When he gives Mathilda her present, there is no blood on his hand, nor when he answers the door for the hotel manager. He doesn't stain her dress either.
