Honestly, I had no idea what this movie was about so I seriously didn't know what to expect from it. Eventually, when the end credits rolled out, I discovered it was directed by Alan Ball, the creator of 'Six Feet Under', one of my favorite TV shows ever, and this was his directing debut.

“Honestly, I had no idea what this movie was about so I seriously didn't know what to expect from it. Eventually, when the end credits rolled out, I discovered it was directed by Alan Ball, the creator of 'Six Feet Under', one of my favorite TV shows ever, and this was his directing debut. Well, even though it was an intriguing tale about the sexual awakening of a very young girl, it was also one hell of a creepy movie.

"Pätkä on kaikkea sitä, mitä Alan Ballilta uskaltaa odottaa. Ahdistunutta, häiriintynyttä, synkkää ja rohkeaa kamaa."
