Oram's first-feature proves consistently intriguing and reliably amusing. The performers are beyond game, with the cream-of-the-British-comedy-crop cast investing proceedings with energy, conviction and variety.
Steve Oram's directorial debut, Aaaaaaaah! (2015), 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.
With irreverent, unsettling social satire & much monkeying about, [it] first dismembers & then reassembles the primeval drives of patriarchy in its own singular way, & will no doubt elicit from viewers plenty of ooooohs, hahahas & even the odd huh?.
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.
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.
