Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. An unusual relationship forms as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade.
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
Mathilda never replaces the floorboard in her old apartment. When she is surprised there, she picks up the money and goes around the corner. The board would have been in the way and the hiding place obvious to the three men.
Under the "SPECIAL THANKS" heading you will find: Chevalier KAMEN (Prince of the Mash Potatoes) Byblos Bill (King of Saint Tropez) Princess Trudy (Queen of Hearts)
All German versions until the Director's cut DVD by Kinowelt miss a small scene where Mathilda tells Leon how old she is.
