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.
The second shot (a tracking shot traveling down a New York street without stopping) could only be accomplished after carefully studying the pattern of the traffic signals so as to ensure the camera truck didn't encounter any red lights.
Allora, come stai, Leone?
Tony: OK. OK. Let's talk business.
A bit more than half way through the film, Mathilda enters a Men's room with a bag of food sitting on top of a pizza. She stops, removes her sunglasses, the camera cuts to a wide-out of the bathroom, and almost immediately cuts back to Mathilda. When this happens, the sunglasses have completely disappeared, never to be seen again in the film.
