Some characteristics of this film are the personal involvement of the director in the facts related, the herald of a serial killer as an absurd entertainment icon and cult figure, and the absence of judgment on the transgressive aspect of love affairs in prison. The film is often presented as a film about love, that offers a definition against the norms.

“The Grand Prix goes to a film that treats the subject with a sensitivity that leaves no judgement of right or wrong. This left the jury mystified about why women would be fascinated with having a relationship with a serial killer on a death row.
