Popcorn time: Wira Wah 华Xiao英雄

Wira Wah
in cinemas June 4, 2015




The story
School teacher Wira Wah (Auguste Kwan) was assigned to teach in a rural area at the Wah Wah Chinese Primary School.
He tries his best to improve not only the students' command of Mandarin but also the villagers'. Sadly, the school has to be shut down as the number of students that they have is insufficient.
Will he be able to save the school in time?

电影大概
故事讲述热爱华文教育的華英雄华老师被委派到偏远的华华小学教导华文。然而,该小学却因为学生人数不足而被逼要关闭。
为了拯救华华小学,華英雄尝尽苦头去说服当地非华裔居民以及对华文教育失去信心的华裔父母把孩子送去该华小受教育。
另一方面,贪婪的校长却和无良的发展商暗中勾结,想尽办法把该校的地段以低廉的价钱卖给无良的发展商,从中赚一笔。
華英雄最后凭一己之力扭转乾坤,团结村民及三大种族拯救了华华小学.


My two cents:
I had no expectations prior to the movie but this is a good watch! Yes there were some plot holes but overall it's one of the better Malaysian movies I've watched this year so far...or dare I say, the best?
It managed to be funny yet thought-provoking.  The innuendos were pretty witty. And it made me proud to take up Chinese language classes.
One of my favourite scenes has gotta be the part where Aunty Lai Meng advises Auguste Kwan while eating clams. She's one of my favourite actresses by the way.
It's the holiday season, so go watch it with your family & kids
