I didn't see any scene about any shower, only have some scenes as an trying of suicide of mathilda that i didn't see in other versions. if shower scene exists is not there. :cry:


In IMDB these are the Runtimes:

Runtime: 110 min / France:136 min (uncut version) / 133 min (International version)


The only that could have that scene if exists is the french version. I'm not sure if it's this one, although the name suggests so.

Leon: The Professional

Postby Amadeus » Fri Sep 14, 2007 9:53 am  0 likes

Clearly says how far society is willing to go in an otherwise unhealthy relationship of attraction between a full grown man and preteen Natalie Portman. Well, provided you blow yourself up to settle matters once and for all.

Two lonely souls displaced in a world bereft of feeling or compassion. Matilda, seeing her entire family shot down by police, and Leon, Matilda's savior and nemesis; a super predator living off the death of others. Death and pain and social decay, the perfect combination for love. Well, so it would seem. Definitely, the best naughty little movie left untouched by societies God O Mighty hand. Leon, never touches her, in spite of her constant advances. However, how would he ever know just how much he loves her, which is apparently so after raging through a building of dirty DEA pigs to find her, sweeping her off her feet to hold her… to close to be anything but true love.

Well, she does end up getting him killed, so there's a lesson to be learned somewhere. ;)

It was a very interesting (but very sad) ending! I have some possibilities...

1. the difficulty of taking the relationship any further (and particularly in which direction!!!) presents itself had Leon not died.

2. the director did not want the (general!) audience to turn against Leon by him (as they see it, and indeed to some extent myself) hindering Mathilda's childhood and growth with regard to being a teenager and having relationships.

3. the act of one dying, especially in romantic films, suggests that Leon would give his life for Mathilda, even though in this instance we already know it to be true. Self- sacrifice is soooo romantic :)

4..... sure I can think of more, not atm though :)

Well, the attraction isn't immediate, it's more of a relationship that develops imo... Leon finally is attracted to Mathilda because of the way she makes him feel... it has nothing to do with the fact that she is a little girl. Although one has to wonder whether a woman would have been accepted into his world and have made him feel the love he did before the end.

Anything can be the perfect combination for love, but extremes such as war, death, inhumanity... I'm sure would create a longing for love.

Leon, never touches her, in spite of her constant advances.


Because Leon recognises that she is a child...

However, how would he ever know just how much he loves her, which is apparently so after raging through a building of dirty DEA pigs to find her, sweeping her off her feet to hold her… to close to be anything but true love.


Yes, in that moment Leon loved Mathilda, for who she was, and how he made her feel and how she made him feel.... they loved each other. But that love isn't based on the premise that she is or remains a child... which is why in some sense that it is so beautiful :heart

Be sure to check out the Uncut version... it explores the physical aspects a little further... but still Leon cannot be faulted... he is a true gentleman... hmm despite being a hired killer.

Just my thoughts on a beautiful movie... :) :)

Thx Rich. That was an amazing reply. This movie has probably been discussed or reviewed by members before, but I see so few reviews, thought I'd add my own.


I've seen a number of the editor's cuts. Like the scene where Leon lets her practice on that drug dealer. Director's were very careful as you've pointed out, to not go to far in presenting Matilda and Leon as equals. Even though the uncut version would clearly suggest otherwise.... Hence, compatible lovers.

What I meant was, if he hadn't become emotionally attached to her, he wouldn't have gone after her into an extremely dangerous situation. He ended up doing exactly the opposite of what he had tried to teach her; his whole career (and success) had been based on being careful and planning each operation meticulously, yet here he is, knowing that it was a suicide mission, and going anyway.
