A Romantic Moment

For me, one of the most romantic and fascinating moments that could be found from any film, is the moment in 'the professional' where mathilde and leon are in his apartment and they have a conversation about a pig.

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.

Wow, you have a twisted sense of romance. *swoon*
I mean, this one I'm talking about isn't my +most+ favorite but its pretty high up there on the list.

What is your favorite scene?

Lets see...

Mathilda: Leon, I think I'm kinda falling in love with you.It's the first time for me, you know?

Léon: How do you know it's love if you've never been in love before?

Mathilda: Cause I feel it.

Léon: Where?

Mathilda: In my stomach. It's all warm. I always had a knot there and now... it's gone.

Léon: Mathilda, I'm glad you don't have a stomach ache any more. I don't think it means anything.

*¿Recuerdas la primera vez en que pensaste que nadie podría cuidar de ti con el tipo de amor que te llega hasta el alma?
