You also said that the parents were "oddly distant" - From my understanding they are supposed to be distant - the idea is that they aren't paying attention to Pita enough, so she is gravitating towards CreasyA lot of the twists and turns in the movie come straight from the original Man on Fire novel, published in the 1980s.Have you seen the 1987 French-Italian film based on the book?
