I saw this film at the St Kilda Film Festival in early 2001 and it blew me away. I had no idea that low-budget Australian film was in such fine shape. Without all the overblown hype of Moulin Rouge and other pseudo-Australian films, this film manages to capture something about Australian life.
The story is simple and charming, the characters are believable and whoever acts the little girl is hopefully destined for big things. Australia's oft-maligned Vietnamese community has rarely been depicted with such affection and depth.
Without a doubt, the best short film to come out of Australia in years.
