Engrossing arty melodrama that brilliantly blends together a tragic political and psychological story set in modern-day Chad.

One man's dark night of the soul brought on by civil war in Chad.

It's a quietly devastating film, aided greatly by a haunting performance from Djaoro.

Daily Express

Tenderly observed and admirably restrained, A Screaming Man builds into an austere, quietly haunting tragedy.

Guardian [UK]

A Screaming Man is a quiet film about family life, the relationship between fathers and children, and the way generations can shape and reshape each other. It ultimately has a sublime quality.

This is a powerful and depressingly downbeat drama that is often hard to watch, although the inexpressive nature of the main character means that it's difficult to fully engage on an emotional level.

This is London

This is not only a good-looking, well directed and splendidly shot and acted film. It is an unforgettable snapshot of a failed country, and one of the best films in London at the moment.

Engrossing and enlightening but it doesn't quite live up to its considerable promise.

Guardian [UK]

Betrayal, guilt, denial, faith and secrecy all roil about beneath the film's placid, almost wordless surface, which is beautifully observed with a stately, Ozu-like calmness.

The director's style is certainly deliberate, but the gradual build-up of events is undeniably thought-provoking, played out in images of stark beauty as Adam's personal odyssey reaches a powerful and moving conclusion.

Haroun deploys no rhetoric at all. His cinema is as mute as Bresson, yet as incandescent.

It's an intelligent, good-looking film and one that confirms Haroun as one of Africa's leading filmmakers.

Beautifully understated, Haroun gives his story room to breathe and the tenderness to touch the heart. A thoughtful tale of fathers and sons.

Director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's movie... shows the quiet desperation that results from inner and outer conflicts.

Draws from a personal understanding that gives its fictional story a tinge of emotional reportage.

It's extremely well-intended and contains the broad strokes of a much better movie, but A Screaming Man's inhuman characters lead to an unfortunate descent into clichés.

Film Journal International

A beautifully photographed tale of betrayal, A Screaming Man nevertheless turns on an improbable transformation by the main character, a father in war-torn Chad.
