What is needed here and now for success, or for survival as a woman? The events occurring around the scales in the classroom may seem funny but are no laughing matter. The ‘sharpen up your looks’ program forced upon a graduating class of a girls’ vocational high school is clearly another example of the disciplinary program of ‘woman-making’ that is imposed on women by the world of nonstop competition and consumer capitalism. This short film shows us the director Yim’s power to make witty dark comedy with serious story.
