Aaaaaaaah! Photos

Movie Info

Alpha Male, Smith and his Beta, Keith, make a move to take over a local community. They hook up with restless Female, Denise, igniting a deadly feud in which emotions run high and deep-seated grudges re-surface amongst the tribe. Are we not men? Or are we simply beasts? This is a celluloid primal sceam in which the entire cast speak in grunts and gibberish - an anarchic, hilarious, disturbing and touching look at the human condition.

  • Steve Oram's deeply British feature debut is the kind of mesmerizing cult oddity whose fan base will be limited but passionate.

  • It won't be for everyone, but its oddly complete universe extends to imagining what primate sitcoms and radio might be like, while a rich strain of bathos yields, among other treats, the cinema's most poignant use of battenberg cake.

  • Aaaaaaaah! is [Steve Oram's] debut feature film as writer and director, a transgressive situationist comedy which is also one of the great British films of the new millennium. Explaining why is not going to be easy.

  • AAAAAAAAH! is ultimately a poignant examination of the contemporary urban rituals that surround class, gender, identity and violence.

  • With his debut experiment, Oram vindicates the importance of slapstick comedy and fart jokes (aren't they timeless after all?)

  • this primal scream of a movie, equally experimental and outrageous, will leave you open-mouthed and no less speechless than its pithecoid personnel (who also like to watch dumb shit on their screens).

    VIFF Review: No shame at all in saying that"AAAAAAAAH!" was easily one of the best films of VIFF 2015. It's absolutely ridiculous and absurd, yet, immensely entertaining, jaw dropping, and hilarious from minute 1 to minute 79. All the characters have been reduced to ape like behaviour, so they all speak in grunt instead of clear dialogue. Despite this, there is a story between all the characters and tons of social commentary to boot. For absurdists and fans of random humour and shock, "AAAAAAAAH!" is your saving grace. As Monty Python used to put it: "And now for something completely different".
