Leon/The Professional, is the film that brought, Jean Reno, his most famous film role. Leon, is a lost soul,
he kills for money, he is an assassin. He keeps himself to himself, that is until he meets, Mathilda. The little girl of 12
years old lives down the hall from him in an apartment, she sometimes picks up groceries for him, usually Milk. Her father
sells drugs for the local drug dealer, who is also a top Policeman, and a very wicked person, her step mother and sister haven't
time for her, the only one she loves is her 4 year old brother. But one day, after a drug deal has gone down badly, her whole
family get killed by the Cops, whilst she is out buying groceries. She ends up banging on, Leons, door. He lets her in and
they kind of look after each other and have a bond between them, all they have is each other in this world. Mathilda makes,
Leon, want to settle down and have a proper home and her as his family, but, Mathilda, has other ideas though, she wants revenge
on the people that killed her little brother. Leons, so called friend, who gets him his 'jobs' wants him to carry on killing
Mathilda, puts a very dangerous situation in action... Is there any way out?.....
I can't help but look at Mathilda as a user, if it wasn't for her Leon, would still be around......
