A Romantic Moment
Mathilde uses the term disparagingly. Leon insists, no, pigs are very clean animals. I have one in my kitchen. She says no you don't I was just there. Dont move. He says.
She realizes, as his pig oven mitt peers over the edge of the wall... that she has affection for him. That he won't hurt her.
The scene is split. Later that night, Leon gets up in the middle of the night, puts a silencer on the gun and walks quickly and purposefully to her room, levels the gun to her head .
And doesn't pull the trigger.
