Léon/ The professional

This movie from 1994
but probably is one of the best assassin movies ever made.

Starring one of my  favourite actor,
Jean Reno,

with Gary Oldman,

and is the debut of Natalie Portman.
she was 12.

Mathilda is a 12 year old living in a shitty place with her family. Her family makes her life miserable coz her dad's a drug dealer, and her step-mom's a hooker. Her step-sister is a bitch who hits her. Her only real family is her brother. 

One day when she was out shopping for grocery,
a group of men came to her house and killed her entire family, including her four year old brother.
When she came back the men were still in her house,
so she continued walking to her neighbour, Leon's house,
not knowing that he's an assassin. 
Leon struggles for awhile if she should open the door for her
and eventually does, which saved her life.

Mathilda then follows her saviour, Leon around (because they wanna escape the group of guys), while learning to "clean", because she wants to avenge her brother.  

I love this movie. 
I can't remember when was the first time I watched this,
but I know I was just a kid.

Even after re-watching the film several times, 
I still love it.

Not only people who love assassin movies should watch this. everyone should.


that's what J_Fish wants to say~ Au Revoir~

p.s. introducing another nice film by Jean Reno, 
The film is in French and Japanese (mostly French)
but it's really fun to watch.

Find one with subtitle.
