A most excellent film that has jumped to the top of my list!
Wah-Wah is a beautiful film! One that i saw just yesterday and have had in my head since and wanted it to stay in there. I have recommended it to everyone i have seen since then, and still find myself commenting on it most randomly.
Wah-Wah is a sad film, and i believe i have cried more tears in this movie more than any other. I had tears running down my neck. I am not generally fond of sad movies but i found this one so different! Besides it is not all sad, I was also even crying with happiness. And laughing too! The only thing that i am disappointed about is that Wah-Wah is not being shown at every cinema, and only very few. I live in Victoria, Aust. And suggest you check out the capital city of your state to see it. I found it definitely worth while! But what i thought was rather curious was that EVERYONE stayed in there seats until the whole of the credits had been run and the curtains starting to close. There was not particularly anything interesting with the actual credits, but it felt appropriate! Richard E. Grant has been one of my two favorite actors for a long time! And this movie he has written and produced, about his life, just adds to my admiration of him. A job well done indeed, and WELL worth seeing!
