Richard E. Grant's mostly autobiographical film tells the story of aboy growing up in Swaziland amidst the end of British colonisation, hisparents' harrowing divorce and his father's destructive alcoholism.Before the film I was promised it would make me cry, laugh and betotally delighted with what I...
Truly fantastic movie. I went to the world premiere last night atEdinburgh Film Festival and was blown away. As much as I like RichardE. Grant, I must confess that I was expecting a rather indulgentart-house auto-biopic. Instead, what we got was a brilliant, superblypaced, wonderfully entertaining f...
Saw Wah-Wah at the Edinburgh International Film Festival – this is areally wonderful film. The story is told from the point of view ofRalph, a child witnessing the breakdown of his parent's marriage anddealing with his father's alcoholism and hasty remarriage. Both thecolonial life and the adul...
I thought the movie was absolutely excellent. I saw it tonight and itheld a very special place in my heart because i'm Swazi and I knew allabout what was happening and Grant's family. I thought it was a veryaccurate portrayal of Swazis and Swazi culture. It was beautifully donebecause it was just a ...
Richard E Grant's "autobiopic" is an illustration of Tolstoy's adagethat while happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family isunhappy in its own way. Grant's childhood in Swaziland as the son of atop colonial administrator (in education) could have been idyllic, butthe idyll was shattere...
Wah-Wah is a beautiful film! One that i saw just yesterday and have hadin my head since and wanted it to stay in there. I have recommended itto everyone i have seen since then, and still find myself commenting onit most randomly.Wah-Wah is a sad film, and i believe i have cried more tears in thismov...
It was fairly brave of Richard E Grant to 'come out' as a director whenacting would be such a secure option for him; particularly now as therole of director, especially of relatively small independent films suchas this, involves all the hustling traditionally taken care of by theproducer. Although h...
i saw this tonight at the tribeca film festival. a truly rewardingexploration of the director's childhood, with honest yet lovingdepictions of his parents. grant has avoided the expected Africanclichés — safaris, tribal dances, national geographic wonders — and haschosen instead a very pe...
The most striking aspect of this film is the sheer honesty of the wholething. Certainly this must have been a heart wrenching assignment forRichard E. Grant. To showcase one's own life through the most traumaticof circumstances, is both noble and humbling. The moral doublestandards of Colonial Brita...
Forget the sniping review on this site. This is a labour of love and isthe true story of a young boy growing up in end-of-the-colonial-eraSwaziland. His loving but alcoholic father, his faithless mother andthe various other upper crust Brits are bang on the button. The filmwas made in a very short t...
The opening scene of this film is something not to be believed. We areaware that young Ralph, who is lying in the back seat of a car is notasleep. When the car stops, his mother, Lauren, and her male companion,proceed to engage in sex in the front seat. Just to imagine that anyonein its right mind w...
This is the kind of movie I desperately hope for when I go to thecinema: A great story with great acting - everything else is windowdressing. The British withdrawal from Swaziland forms a quite distantbackdrop for this family melodrama. Absolute powerhouse performancesfrom Gabriel Byrne (as an alcoh...
The film hasn't been released yet in America, but I did see a previewearlier today in a film series that I go to. Anyway, to position thismovie as a warm family comedy is COMPLETELY missing the point of thisfilm. While it may have a few comedic parts it is most definitely NOT acomedy! And the first ...
Sitting in any American cinema audience, one is always aware thatbattle will have to be fought with the munchers, crunchers, cell phonebrigade and plastic bag gang. Well done to Richard E Grant who silencedthem all. Unlike many others, I held back my tears until the last fiveminutes but the view fro...
Such a pity this film is not being shown on general release butapparently only at "art" cinemas. It is one of the most moving films Ihave ever seen and will stay with me for many years to come. The entireaudience in the theatre where I saw this film sat in stunned silence atthe end. Seeing the movie...
Friday May 26, 4:30pm The Egyptian Sunday May 28, 6:30pm Pacific PlaceSet in 1969 as Swaziland is about to gain independence from Britain,Wah-Wah is the childhood memoir of actor, writer and director RichardE. Grant (Withnail & I, Gosford Park). Twelve-year-old Ralphie is theson of Harry (Gabriel By...
I've passed this one on the shelf a dozen times and happened to pick itup as my wife doesn't like dark comedy, shoot'em-ups or slap-stick. Iknew it was a winner just seeing Gabriel Byrne, Miranda Richardson andEmily Watson. But, the story was excellent, young Nicholas Hoult wasoutstanding with the s...
Richard E. Grant, if I may say so, owes a huge apology to thepopulation of the United States. For I can see them now, those millionsof Americans, earnest devotees of popular culture, trotting along totheir local movie theatre in the erroneous belief that Grant's "WahWah" is a Barbara Walters biopic....
Gifted actor Richard E. Grant makes his writing and directing debutwith this highly entertaining film about the last days of Britishcolonial protectorate of Swaziland, East-South Africa, drawing from hismemoirs as a child growing up in Swaziland the time when the Kingdom ofSwaziland was given its in...
Just saw this film at the Seattle International Film Festival. It's avery personal story written superbly--the script keeps pace beautifullybut for the smallest lag in the middle--and well acted. What could havebeen cliché-ed seems fresh and engaging. Byrne manages the turn from adespicable blind d...
Grant's movie had me laughing and crying. It is not a comedy but it hasmoments of comedy that are priceless - Lady Muck finding out that herexpert dancing partner was in fact a black man.....And as ever, looking for continuity faults in films. (concrete railroadties had not been invented yet) But to...
Like all films, if there is a good script and storyline, then the filmwill work. This film certainly had it all and the cast is outstanding.Just when it seems to be settling down in a particular direction, itchanges tack but doesn't loose it's grip on the audience attention.Gabriel Byrne, being the ...
This is an autobiographical film about a child's turbulent childhood ina small African country.The good thing about this film is that the characters are amazing.Acting by the various lead characters are superb. There are drunkfathers, charming seductress, unhappy children and pretentious upperclass ...
"Wah-Wah" is worth watching because it paints an intriguing portrait ofthe British Empire's final days in Swaziland and the acting is verygood throughout. The story is supposedly based on Richard E. Grant'sbizarre childhood and is at times shocking, such as when his alcoholicfather tries to shoot hi...
I have never been to Swaziland and was never been a member of thecolonial junket, but this film really spoke to me. *Minor Spoiler*Thestory is about a boy growing up as his father slowly descends intoalcoholism after his first wife leaves him. I shared this samebackground, and I must say that this i...
