“A truly beautiful film… breathtaking in its simple honesty - filled with love and tenderness, and profoundly human.”
- Keith Carradine, Actor Nashville, Deadwood

“A stunning and beautiful film… it blew me away. 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.”
- IMDb

“Made with maturity and grace, the film's subtle direction brought emotion and pleasure to its audience.” 
- Golden Leopard Award Citation from Locarno International Film Festival Jury
