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.
All of the interiors of Léon's apartment were shot in Paris; all of the shots of the outside corridor were shot six weeks earlier in New York.
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
When the fat man calls the cops, the antenna on the phone is longer than when Leon is behind him.
