The atmosphere created is consistently original and captivating, and that's because every single job was done perfectly on set. Generally I can pinpoint the most proficient aspect of filmmaking in the films I watch, and while I can do that here and say that the sound design is definitely the most effective part, every aspect was done extremely well.
The cast was great, the cinematography was excellent. The music, the editing, the work the interns did, etc. It was all fantastic. And Richard Ayoade has a wonderful eye for detail, and he obviously understands just how important the little ones are.
This romantic story of two teenagers expresses how fragile we are and how we can behave in this age, believing so many things, experiencing, conquering and also committing mistakes, but always being unique and sincere. The characters are not heroic or very complex, but neither are normal. In fact, it seemed incredible to me how a boy of such a strange and mysterious profile can generate such an empathetic story, conveying all manner of thoughtful feelings which everyone has experienced. Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts), who is the protagonist, is worried about the people he loves, always making external his plans and deeper emotions wishing well-being for his girlfriend Jordana (Yasmin Paige) and the union of the decadent relationship between his parents.
This fantastic and impeccable story makes us see that we all have a Tate inside us, always filling us with details that motivate us to remember that we are the ones who must act for what we want to achieve, although this can be very difficult and can get out of control. Submarine is full of elaborate analogies whose magnificence is illustrated in the way we face adversity, generating a film that is neither forced nor tasteless. Instead, it leaves a great smile as it is a full-fledged comedy that should be seen definitely more than once because it is full of very interesting premises and all of them are very well executed. 88/100
It's beautifully shot and features some good performances, and the movie succeeds as a cute teen love story with a few humorous scenes. But it's really got nothing new to offer and I often found myself looking at the clock. It's well made, but there's nothing here you haven't seen, and haven't seen better.
