Note to self: do not go on IMDB and look up a movie you will be discussing in class.
Facts do not help. The film-makers' actual motivations - and especially lack thereof - are not helpful in a discussion of themes and deep important messages in the text.
Just go with it. "Really, that's not what I thought. I thought the film-maker was actually making a very important point of the state of the egg economy in South-East Asia." It's all about how you interpret it. Facts? Pfft. A solid arguement is what's needed.
