Film on 15 year-olds in Singapore. Do you always see everything that's happening? Or are you just blind to the things you don't want to see?
18 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing film.

Many people don't like it, perhaps because they're used to the films that Hollywood keeps spitting out. Fast-paced, over dramatic films (Please note: I'm referring to some, not all) I've seen some terrible films in my lifetime, and 15 is certainly not one of them.

The trailer sums it up well. Unbreakable friendships, the "in-your face" visuals, the drama, the comedy.

There's not many films that I laugh at this much. It was fun to watch, painful at times, but all in all a lovely, amazingly well done, creative, unique film.

While some may find it a disappointment, I wholeheartedly disagree.

It was fantastic. You become attached to the characters. Things were's blatantly obvious, there's some fantastic quotes.

This is everything I thought it would be, and more.
