I had wanted to see this film for quite some time after seeing an advertisement for it when I was in London this summer, but missed it when it came to cinemas here. So when I saw Submarine sitting there on the DVD shelf at Best Buy, I had to buy it.
I found Submarine to be beautifully made. The vignettes, the fireworks, and the sublime landscapes of Wales all added so much to the film. Along with the cinematography and all, I thought the story, screenwriting, and overall tone of the film were fantastic. I became completely absorbed in the story, and by the end found myself pleading for Jordana to get back together with Oliver Tate.
As for the cast, they were great. Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige were marvelous together, and I thoroughly enjoyed Noah Taylor’s bearded performance. I do not think the film could have been cast any better.
Submarine was truly interesting, gripping, charming, heartwarming, heartbreaking, and then heartwarming again, a great piece of British cinema in my opinion. I would highly recommend you go see this movie, especially if you’re a fan of quirky love stories.
If there are any films you would like me to give my opinions on, just send me a recommendation in my ask box and I would be happy to watch it and share my thoughts. I’m always looking for new movies to watch.
