James A. Ward,
During an argument, a divorced executive and his 11 year old son casually touch a magical Tibetan skull, releasing a mysterious power that transfers the father's mind to the body of the son and vice versa. Their problems have just begun.
Lambs of God is a dark, gothic tale about three nuns, each a generation apart, living in an isolated convent by the coast, and an unwelcome visitor who enters their lives and changes their world forever.
When a self-important comedian has an out-of-body experience, his body is hijacked by the spirit of a heckler he accidentally killed, and he must find a way to reclaim it before his career as a stand-up is ruined forever now that an idiot is in charge.Written by
'Can Steve repossess his body before this idiot destroys his relationships, his finances and his one shot at fame?' is the question posed by the Melbourne based filmmakers in The Heckler.
Australian comedies don't always hit the spot - but it's hard not to laugh out loud watching The Heckler, about a comedian, in the world of comedy, written by a comedian, starring comedians, set in a comedy club in the lead up to a comedy competition. Finally! A comedy about comedy!
It's a slow start, that builds a world that is real and unreal, credible and incredulous and we go with it - we go with the heckler and the comedian for an entertaining ride in the world of stand up comedy. Which couldn't have been easy to achieve - given stand up comedy is about getting real - and telling it as it is - and this film is a body swap film - which is anything but real. But they pull it off! A well crafted blend of all that you want to see in a comedic film, with the truth and rawness of stand up comedy at it's core.
The surprise is that it's also heartwarming and charming in a way that most comedies fail to manage. It's very well cast, with comedians who are also actors, and actors who have comedic timing. Well directed, well written and a film that comedians and audience alike will enjoy.
It's an easy film to enjoy, good for date night, boys or girls night out, and families with teenagers - and great entertainment. Pure entertainment.
I hope to see this film continue it's sold out, award winning COMEDY festival run and ends up on TV and in cinemas for more to enjoy.
