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.
Liv Tyler was considered for the part of Mathilda but, at age 15, she was deemed too old.
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
Leon erroneously uses the word "client" to refer to the person being targeted. A "client" is a person who hires Leon, via a "contract", to do a "cleaning" (killing) job, whereas a "target" or a "mark" refers to the one to whom a contract has been issued.
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)
