What is needed here and now for success-no, for survival-as a woman? The happenings around the scales in the classroom are funny but not simply something to be laughed at. The ‘sharpen up your looks’ program forced on a graduating class in a girls’ commercial high school , and the demands of the prospective superiors on the applicants that have to stand in a straight line before them are clearly another regulating program of ‘woman-making’ that is forced on women by this world of nonstop competition and consumer capitalism. The director’s fresh wit takes us behind our society’s obsession with good looks. (Byun Jai-ran)
