Submarine (2010)

Film #350

Submarine (2010)

Just another coming of age romantic comedy with a British twinge. The plot is nothing new but debut director Richard Ayoade manages to make the film thrum with quality. I'm definitely looking forward to more of his films. The cinematography was quite nice. All the actors are great with the two main leads, Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige, driving the film with their quirky and realistic yet at the same time slightly over dramatic relationship. The film does begin to falter a bit near the middle due to the film focusing more on the falling relationship of the main leads parents then their own. Still, it was entertaining from the start to the end with plenty of references that may excite some of you film lovers, and managed to once again confirm to me that love is just so damn messy.
