Leon

Question: Why is Mathilda abused by her father, mother, and older sister?

Chosen answer: No specific reason is given; it's most likely intended to highlight that her family are bad people (they are drug dealers after all) and to show in contrast that Mathilda and her little brother are not, so we feel badly for them.

Question: I was wondering about the title change from "Leon" to the "Professional". Was the title only changed in the U.S. and if so why?

Chosen answer: According to IMDb.com the title was only changed in the United States and the reason why was maybe audiences would find the title, "The Professional" more appealing than "Leon."

When the camera switches back, the holes around the vent are different.
