This was a very interesting film. It is in fact NOT banned in Singapore. I saw this film while living there and it was quite a relief. Though the movie focuses on street hoodlums, the overall theme is the forgotten people of singapore who are not able to be doctors, lawyers or gahment (government) cronies. Students are streamlined at a very young age and a few bad tests mean your are lumped in with the dregs. This film shows what is happening in Singapore on a side that many sinagporeans are unaware of. 5 stars for boldness. The cinematography is tough (choppy) at parts and the story line jumps a bit...but it is still very compelling.

Believe it or not, this film is banned in Singapore. Not surprising at all given the rather tight and strict film censorship. I like to think that Singapore just doesn't want to be portrayed as a country that has gang and drugs related problems.

All actors are real life teenage gangsters. At the time of the release of this film, most of them were being investigated by police for gang and drug related incidents.

This is a film with a powerful message: Not everything in and out of Singapore is as "clean and green" as it appears to be. Dark, disturbing and yet at times hilarious, there hasn't been much similar films out of Singapore except for Eating Air (also about aimless teenagers in Singapore) and MeePok Man.

This movie has a strong theme of death, including suicide yet still manages to include humor and silliness, however, there are some boring sections also. But in the end, the theme of friendship comes through.

The movie 15 is about young boys from Singapore who society largly ignores. I found this movie fascinating, thoroughly entertaining, and quite insightful. I know, I know, many people will say that this is not an accurate depiction of most boys from Singapore, but I think that is exactly what the director is saying. Some people are different, outcasts, and the public at large does not understand or agree with these people who they view as being different.

Honestly, I didn't see anything gay in it. In one scene, one boy kissed another boy to get some blood off his face, though I am sure it was just an excuse to kiss him. I honestly do not know why this movie is in the gay section. I actually like watching gay movies, but found this one to just add a little hint of something that might be considered gay or homoerotic just so they can advertise to the gay audience. Other than that, I really didn't see anything else gay about it. Still a good movie.

I believe, in the end, it shows that these young boys value the same thing everyone else does, deep down: companionship. Since they are misunderstood by society, they find each other, boys just like them, who they hang around, spend time with, grow to companions. In the end, these boys, like everyone else, don't want to be alone. I believe that is the meaning of the movie, and the director showed it clearly while being artistic and fun. I had a great time watching this movie.

This is your Asian coming to age film. I hightly enjoyed and continue to watch. Boys around the age of 15 coming to age and encountering and living life in a gang. It was band in Singapore and watching it, it can be understandable but its not like this movie was out right TV-MA to the extreme. The story centers around several young boys in search for true companionship and brotherhood. Things that all young teens growing into adulthood is wanting to find.
