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.
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)
