"Léon: The Professional" AKA "Léon" > 1994 > Directed by: Luc Besson - It's touching, it's cruel, it's tear jerking, it's hillarious. An amazing Jean Reno vs. the already crazily talented Nathalie Portman. Has me in tears every single time.
Agnès Jaoui co-writes and directs this romantic comedy of manners set in France's rustic Provence. Unpolished and ultra-pragmatic industrialist Jean-Jacques Castella (co-scripter Jean-Pierre Bacri) reluctantly attends Racine's tragedy
A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
