They say "all you need is love." They also say "age ain't nothin' but a number." But every so often when you're watching a movie, you see a mismatched couple — or lovestruck criminal — taking things too far. Here are some of the most uncomfortable age gaps in movies…
That's My Boy | 0:15
Big | 0:51
American Beauty | 1:42
Leon: The Professional | 2:25
The Diary of a Teenage Girl | 3:10
Harold and Maude | 4:02

age is just a number. consent born of mutual understanding and desire is the only thing that matters. not how many times the earth has rotated the sun since your birth. just remember, being an adult doesn't make you intelligent nor wise. trump and Brexit happened because of adults.
Haven't seen the video yet but there's nothing wrong with the relationship in "Leon, The Professional" Matilda may say Leon is her lover in reality their relationship is more of a father-daughter relationship.
You could add Cuban gooding jr in that movie called hero wanted. That little girl had a crush on him they were cool and I believe the girl offers herself up to him but in that movie Cuba gooding jr. Was like you be too young she got mad and got on her bike and ran away but in the end they end up making up. He basically looked at her as like a little sister but she had other ideas.
Leon is a great movie. The kind of movies you can watch many times even if you know the story and its end. Nevertheless, I think the relation between Mathilde and Leon was quite dubious. There is no love scene between them on the screen; but the 12 years old Mathilde was drinking alcohol, smoking and she asked Leon to kiss her on her mouth. Of course, Leon refused to kiss Mathilde but in another scene they even slept in the same bed. Besson was smart enough to not to show anything indicating they had sex. They said "'I love you" to each other. Mathilde meant she loves Leon as a man while Leon declaration can be interpreted in different ways. All in all, Besson avoided any legal issues but the relation is quite uncomfortable.
+where have you gone? That was very well said. Pointed and articulate. No I did not assume abuse I assumed Nature. The attraction of the young to the older is natural and vice versa but for different reasons. While the young seek the Mature as experience and trust appear a more likely avenue for a successful and positive experience, the older can feel an attraction to the young as both a means of retaining youth as well as a desire to educate and pass on knowledge (sexual and otherwise). Of course this can be perverted from both ends, but doesn't necessarily have to be so. You made an excellent argument, I hope you will allow me to counter with an equally valid one. People are not perfect and as much damage can be done in the name of altruism as in malevolence. When The young experience their awakenings together I would argue there is as much risk of damage as there is with age different relations but for several reasons. When both are young there is less control on the parts of both and often results in awkwardness and hurt feelings as well as abuse. Of course there can be manipulation and abuse on the opposite side of the argument as well as hurt feelings and awkwardness. Ultimately I would ague in favor of the young learning together, but there can be benefits to an older younger coupling such as experience, open mindedness, an likelihood of better self control, and a better opportunity to explore (Less hang ups and or feelings of embarrassment). Everything has it's has it's risks and rewards. I just don't like the constant outright demonizing of things while simultaneously disregarding the potential for positive results based on misguided or ill informed notions of Morality or projections of internalized yet baseless shame. I think it comes down to intent and and results. If No Harm No foul then nobody's business but those involved who have consented. Now this is where it gets sticky as I understand and advocate for both sides here as well. The age of consent is arbitrary and different people mature at different ages. So while adding legal restrictions is understandable: where exactly should the line be drawn and under which circumstances if any should exceptions be made? I say the age of consent should be at about 13 or 14, but that is just my take on things. If there are exceptions made and in cases where the law becomes involved they should involve both the parents and the young adult. Certainly counseling should take place separately and abuse if any determined. I don't want Parents selling their kids out any more than I want undue influence on the child (I'm 45 anyone under 20 are kids to me). Nor do I want young people weaponizing accusations or parents conspiring in such a plan. As I said it gets hairy and my ideas are over simplified and claims of abuse in any direction are indeed a problem. Feel free to tell me what you think. Is it best we keep the age where it is? Should there be exceptions especially with regards to mutual underage encounters? Yeah this is tough stuff and safety should be balanced with freedom. Of course I err on the side of caution in this matter, but also suggest the best solutions are informed and responsible people providing a safe environment and leave the shame for acts of outright selfishness and abuse. I don't think shame should be put upon the youth for natural innocent acts and feelings. I grew up in a religious home and the shame was ridiculous. Thankfully I was intelligent and rebellious and forever questioning so the shame game didn't work much on me, but that kind of crap seems to affect people and create lifelong problems and confusion. (Low self esteem and trouble connecting) OK This was a long one. If you read it all thank you for the great conversation...
I've never been sexually abused if that's what you're implying. You don't have to experience something to know it's happening. It's constantly around us and yeah, adult women do manipulate young boys. It's exactly why adult-child relationships are so wrong. Power, maturity, and experience over someone who's only been around for such a small amount of time.
I do recall an experience with a teacher in the 7th grade where I attempted to kiss them and was ultimately rejected. I was upset at the time but i realize now how awful it would've been if he recopirated. As children, we have our miscalculated experimentation with each other. To have an adult infiltrate those experiences damages our insight.
And I'm just fine with my resentment and bitterness. Experiences build our knowledge. Our misfortunes dictate our ethics. We shouldn't allow hatred to rot our hearts but we should always remember our woes for future judgement.
If we don't judge the actions of others then morals won't exist.
+where have you gone? It sounds as if what I said hit home. Perhaps your experiences may have something to do with you making it possible. Not all people are decent people or altruistic. It's a rough world but it doesn't help to be resentful or carry grudges. The point of life is to live and learn. BTW the manipulation can happen in the other direction and often does. Women can be incredibly manipulative and wield a great deal of sexual power. It is important to act responsibly both to yourself and others. Respect yourself and set boundries and teach your children to do the same. Ultimately our choices are our own. Rape and pedophilia is a whole different ball game altogether. I appreciate that you wrote me back. That was incredibly honest and actually quite touching. I appreciate that a great deal. You could have responded quite differently. My comment was rather Curt if not rude... I just care about people and am tired of over reaction and being offended on behalf of others. I would prefer people kept their own moral standards to themselves and quit being so damn judgmental. It's not healthy personally and more so for society.
Young girls are vulnerable to the behavior of men. Maybe adult women can handle it easier but a young girl isn't so mature to be getting in relationships with an adult man. For what? To get raped and end up discarded? Quite rarely does an adult man look at young girls in a loving and respectful manner even if sexual or romantic.
Maybe sometimes an adult man will love a teenage girl as an actual human being but it doesn't happen enough to excuse men pursuing young girls. I used to be interested in adult men for most of my life but usually it was just based on finding males attractive, i didnt actually care to be with them. Men will take that interest and twist it into what they want to hear.
Though I doubt that you have the empathy to understand that.
There I am ... only with brown hair and a lil different looking photoshopped... so nobody would recognize me in public ..!!!! She’s sooo gorgeous and perfect 👌🏾 I had no idea ! It was Marilyn Monroes photo that freaked me out ... like looking in the mirror ..!!!!!
Scared the shit out of me ..!!! Both are beautiful ... loved her in Star Wars movies .. my ex hubby looks just like Anikan when they kiss scene at the beginning when she tells him she’s pregnant ..!!! It’s my hubby and I ..?!!! A lil changes but it’s definitely US... I missed that one too ..!!! Until my hubby licked his lips to bend down and kiss me one day ... then I saw the movie and that scene ... but I still wasn’t sure .,?!!! Just coincidence I thought ..!!! Maybe it is !!!
I have seen Lolita, Leon and American Beauty and Manhattan but none of them made me as uncomfortable as Diary of a Teenage Girl. I had to quit within the first some minutes when he talk about his 'boner for her'
Because you are normal unlike a majority of these Pearl Clutching, Virtue Signalling, Moral Inquisitors here in this feed. All preaching because they feel guilty about natural attractions. BTW age differences are common and have existed since the dawn of man. There is a difference between pedo shit and forced abuse and curiosity and sexual awakening.
'The Professional' is when I fell in love with Natalie Portman. I knew she was going to be very big in film. And 'Manhattan'... where, eventually, life imitated art. Woody Allen is a pedophile, and should have been thrown in prison.
I admit a justly 12 year shaver sleeping with a woman sounds awful albeit I REALLY can`t even justly try out it`s as awful aparthy from 13 yearz THN I`M DISLIKING THIS VIDEO WITHIN MOTIVE IT`S NEVA THIS BAD MENTAL SICKLY FIGURE
is it just me or is it more a problem not the age gap but that one 'lover' is like teenage and other is adult... like tha age gap is same if someone who is 12 is with someone who is idk 22 but its (more) normal if there is someone 22 dating 32?...
You have to be pretty fucked in the head to get sexual vibes from Leon. It's clear the girl has a crush combined with wanting a father figure and the guy is awkward handling saying no. It's a film about 2 screwed up people meeting the right friend at the right time. Christ, I swear people see bloody pedophiles everywhere nowadays...
Pedophilia is a legal problem because consent of a minor is dubious. For one, minors cannot be held responsible to contracts. So any binding document may be rescinded of consent of the minor at any time. Additionally, coercion is very much a problem as well, as young people are not legally considered mature enough to decide to be in a sexual relationship.
So even if you find yourself attracted to young looking people, that is not is what is “sick”. What is “sick” is taking advantage of a child in a sexual manner who cannot legally consent. Or any person who can’t consciously consent, for that matter.
What is sick are arbitrary standards of morality that shift throughout time. And the "Coersion" often happens in the opposite direction. I'm not advocating pedophilia, but sexual maturity does not occur at a specific age. Not long ago women were married by the =age of 13-15 and often to older men and I'm sure there was play in the opposite direction. Please grab your pearls elsewhere.
Fuck off you Pearl Clutching Virtue signalling Twat... There was not a single person in any of the movies that hadn't reached the age of sexual awakening. I suspect you are the one into pedo shit and projecting your guilt onto others. He doth Protest too loudly...
