What a surprise!
She's fifteen. He's about thirty years older than her. And they are in love. She knows what she is doing. So does he. The movie does not try to preach, just to show some people are like that. I must say I was happily surprised to see such potentially heavy subject handled as gently as it is. The actress was actually a virgin and fifteen when they filmed it, so her mother was present, and someone had to explain to the girl how to fake a sex scene. It was funny to see her recall the experience at a movie debate on Brazilian TV. And she looks convincing in the movie. I thought she was older, and doing a good job of looking younger, when I saw it. If you seriously believe no one under 18 has any emotional maturity, you're in for a shock.
