Femme Fatale with a twist
You have never seen a femme fatale that is only 12 but there are many things in this film one will never see in another film. There is no nudity below the waste though sex is implied and shown facing the male on top of an obvious stand in. You still do not see anything though Simona is often nude and clearly shown from the waste up.

The story is worthwhile because I am sure this kind of attraction happens all the time. The pedophile murderer does not hide his crime but this a such a dysfunctional family they accept him and Simona even wants to have his baby. You can also view this as a cautionary tale about marriages of convenience and/or money that really have no basis beyond that.

The attraction between the child and the killer is believable in every way but the ending is not at all predictable and is worth the price of admission. Shall I call it a happy ending? Pretty close.
