Movie I dig 022: Submarine (2010)

Submarine is based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne. I’ve read that novel a few years back. An extremely funny and witty read.

The film is exactly like that. Richard Ayoade did a terrific job on visualising the novel.

Basically it’s a film about and narrated by Oliver Tate, who is a peculiar young fellow, to say the least. It’s like he always try to approach everything with the utmost level of emotionlessness and rationality. This is quite funny since a 15-year old boy is full of emotion with hormones racing through his body. And so is Oliver. In this film Oliver falls in love and of course his little heart – as his father describes it – is broken.

Most of the characters in this film seem to be coming straight from a weird cartoon rather than a real world. (Nonetheless credible.)
