At first, he wasn’t really happy to live with her because he used to live alone. So, he tried to banish her from his house. However, Matilda always set precipitation so make him can’t do the action. In that way, Leon starts to live with Matilda, and their relationship gets closer slowly after the time goes. But one day, while Matilda was getting lesson from Leon to revenge the one who killed her parents, she noticed that who is the killer, and tried to revenge by herself, but failed. As a result, Leon saved her again from the killer after he noticed it, for a while, the situation get started to be the worst situation.
The movie’s director’s name is Luc Besson. He debuts by “The Last Battle” which he did the whole screenplay, direct, and manufacture in 1983. And it continues to allow him to make another movie “Subway” with Jean Leno after two years. After that, he made another two movie “El Gran Azul”, and “Nikita” too, and his choice was always been, Jean Leno. As final, in 1994, he made his best hit movie “Leon” with Jeon Leno, which made the whole world get craze of Leon and Matilda. As a result of this, he makes people invest in his other movie ” The Fifth Elements”, and these days, he shows that he is still a virtuoso by making “Taxi”, and “The Messenger”, and now, he is usually participate planning and screenplay. He actually participates in almost 78 movies between 2000~2018, includes movies that he participates as director. At this point, we can judge that he is one who keeps making movies as a factory and making us keep curious that where is his passion keeps coming from.
Matilda who usually be assaulted by her dad, there was no place to lean on. Mom was a strange woman whose dad brings it, and her sister was a self-centered person and never consider matilda. Because of all of this, she usually spends her time to endure pain by herself. even when the school called to her house, he lied that she is already dead, at this point we can see that how she was living a gloomy life. But one day, her whole family died by a killer, especially her brother whose age is 4 years old and the one who only matilda loved died too and it continues to make matilda always thinking about revenge to the killer. However, she was too young to do an act of revenge so he lied to Leon that she is 18years old. Since her dad start to hit her, she usually thinks that she wants to grow up fast. However, it was just her hope so there was nothing that she can do without spending time. But, after she met Leon, she finds that how to be an adult, and endlessly ensnare him to have sex with him. That is the only way that she thought to be an adult. The main point of this is that Leon was a light to her to escape her gloomy life.
As the apposite, Leon was an adult who wanted to be a kid again. When he was 19, he falls in love and it continues to lose everything and it makes that he grow up as mindless. Because of love, he starts to kill people to revenge to the girl’s dad for the girl he loved, because she died by his father. After that, he ran away to America and followed his dad to kill people and work with tony. In other words, he was also living in the dark without anyone and with lonely for a long time. But there is a little difference between matilda, that he never prayed for salvation. That’s why he hesitates to save matilda at first. Then what is the reason why he wanted to keep stay in dark? What is the reason that he never put off his sunglass until he sleeps?
There was a strange thing in tony’s store that there was always an old man was sitting at the end of the table. But almost give a feeling of dying. In other words, it was hard to find some vitality from him. And keep says that “change is not good” to Leon and made him sit next to the old man when he came back and tried to constrain him to stop him changing.
Leon start to watch some girl’s life after he faced Matilda in the hallway by using a small hole. After that, he gave favor to her when he felt commiseration while watched her dad hitting her. And it continues to change in his life. But at first he wasn’t usual to change so he tried to kill her at first but he couldn’t so he get close with matilda fastly. After that, he teaches matilda that how to be a killer and after their first mission success, he stopped drinking milk and cheers with matilda by a whine, which has many meanings. The most important part of it is that Leon start to leave tony’s shadow and start to walk away from his life by his own self, which means that he becomes to adult.
While the stories go, Matilda represents to Leon that she loves him without any hesitation. Then did Leon loved Matilda too? In my opinion, I think that he did it too. But I have no idea that did he loved her as a daughter or as a girl. While the million times of Matilda’s temptation, he never gets fall in it. And keep says that he can’t love anyone, and keep admonish Matilda. At the end of the movie, Leon says that he loves Matilda, and it was at the scene while escaping Matilda from enemy, But actually this scene is more close to father and daughter than a couple. However, it can’t be the main point to decide Leon’s emotion, because they keep showed as family, as father and daughter, a friend and a lover.
