Synopsis from Gadoh website ( http://www.komas.org/gadoh/about.htm ):

"Gadoh tells a story of a group of teenagers who fought each other along racial lines; a cycle of hatred and violence further escalated by their environment and school system. What was to be a quick resolution to improve the school?s bad image, was taken as an opportunity for one teacher who believed that real change was possible. She ropes in the help of an old friend and reluctant maverick theater activist for this arduous task. "

trailer:

one of the funny scenes:

a good soul was kind enough to upload the whole 70 minutes of the movie on youtube. Here is the link to the all 8 parts of the movie:

This movie receives a lot of positive critics on internet. Just google the reviews for further information. However, there is a rumour that this movie is going to be banned (or if lucky enough, allowed to be on screen but with lots of scenes censored out) by malaysian government. So, better watch the movie right now while all of its scenes still intact on youtube.
A bit unrealistic when the animosity between the two gangs were fully resolved in a matter of days. However, overall it's a good film that it feels very much at home, especially the part where they started saying things like Cina babi and Melayu malas etc. Worth a watch.

A few great movies I have had the opportunity to watch recently:

1. To Kill a Mockingbird - if I watched it ten years ago I would have probably studied law today. A classic movie with strong themes and amazing acting from its main actor Gregory Peck.

2. Memento - A mystery movie with a very novel plot, it provokes thoughts about what our memory actually makes us who we are.

3. The Lives of Others - A very touching film on an East German spy who took on the life and feeling of the people he is spying on.

4. In Bruges - A dark comedy involving two hired murderers who fled to Bruges after an accidental murder in a church.

Recently watched Departures during my psychology class. It's a good movie. Funerals and the encoffinment process have never been explored this deeply (not to mention emotionally) in films.

Harry Potter 7.2 - a great ending to the HP series. Very engaging screenplay and some tear jerking moments!

ARGH!!!! It's out today here... but I didn't go and watch. I'd love to watch the end to the whole story. (I should have gone to watch when I was in Jusco earlier on... damn!)
