Crime from a new point of view
11 November 2006 | by melissdoSee all my reviews

Chun allies humor and danger in this short which looks at race, age, and class in fresh light. The film is spiced with personal connection which gives the viewer a chance to relate more closely with the text than is usually allowed. Fantastic cinematography and realistic dialogue are the best parts of the movie, along with the absolutely adorable and talented child-actors! The fact that the events in the film are portrayed through the child-characters' points of view is what gives this film the "fresh light" I referred to up top--Tze Chun's point of view must be equally as fresh and I look forward to more work from this up-and-coming director/writer/ Renaissance Man.
