This is really haunting and beautiful. A true indictment of what we think of as progress in SE Asia. My only issue with the short is that it drags you out right at the moment you realize how bad things are likely to go for these three. The full film is not as nice to the viewer, and I think that is what works about it. The short is nice, but, as someone else said here, it's almost cute.
