Dir: Steve Oram
Aaaaaaaah! appears almost like a classic British kitchen sink drama - with family disputes, relationship troubles, arguments, and even outbursts of violence.
But these routine events are very different in Aaaaaaah! the action may take place amongst ordinary looking people, but the protagonists here are anything but familiar…instead they exist in a world where the animal inside dominates, a universe where evolution has taken a very different turn.
In Aaaaaaah! the human condition is told through a language of grunts and gibberish, more ape than human, creating a remarkable film that is disturbing, hilarious and anarchic, a cinematic primal scream.
A unique directorial debut from actor / director Steve Oram (Sightseers, The World’s End) with an excellent ensemble cast – that includes Toyah Willcox and Julian Barratt (A Field In England, The Mighty Boosh), as well as a cameo by Noel Fielding – who all rise perfectly to the demands of the project. If this wasn’t enough, the movie is scored by King Crimson Projects. Aaaaaaaah! is a film that will stay with the audience long after the credits have rolled.
“Steve Oram's directorial debut Aaaaaaaah! comes on like a collaboration between Dogme '95 and Chris Morris. It's hard to think of another film closely like it in British cinema. It really is that out-there and singular.” – cine-vue.com
