I had the pleasure of seeing this film at The Toronto film festival a few nights ago and I absolutely loved it! I had no expectations going in, since it was the directorial debut for Richard Ayoade. He did a wonderful job with this film. It was beautifully shot and directed and the cast, although unknowns to me were unbelievably good! I didn’t understand a few jokes since I didn’t understand a bit of the British humour, but most of the jokes were universally understandable which is great. Overall I gave it a 9 out of 10 and I can’t wait until it gets distributed worldwide so I can see it again. I hope Richard Ayoade starts working on another film soon, because I’m excited to see what else he can do.
Attention-getting since its debut at Toronto, this oddball coming-of-age comedy from director Richard Ayoade — who already has a cult audience for his work in front of the TV camera (“The IT Crowd”) and behind it (“The Mighty Boosh”) — caught good air at Sundance even with people who lazily tagged it as an homage to Wes Anderson/Hal Ashby. Despite cribbing from a number of overt influences, Submarine`s focus on a transitional month in the life of adolescent is nevertheless unique, trust me. And his girlfriend is totally bonkers; I’m obsessed with her character.
