We had the pleasure of seeing and listening to Richard Ayoade in person at last night's screening at the Glasgow Film Festival. I am normally a bit scared of coming-of-age movies, mainly because of potential cheesiness and annoying child actors but Submarine managed to an accurate, funny portrayal of the hell of teenage UK school life. There were some slightly Adrian Mole-esque moments but that's not a bad thing. The audience at the screening seemed to think that the whole thing was a rip-roaring comedy and laughed at points which were obviously supposed to be more poignant or sad. <more>
Overall, however, the tone is one of wry comedy at the horrors of growing up and even subjects such as brain tumors & divorce are treated as lightly heartedly as possible.Don't be put off that Ben Stiller's production company was behind funding the film - it has nothing in common with a Hollywood teen movie. One of the best British films we have seen.
Unique and arty, like the mind of a teenage boy. (by crazy-ben66)
Teenage angst is a theme covered by many and conquered by none within the cinematic landscape of the 21st century. Modern teenage "romances" exist only as pixelated words darting between computers and phones and never as emotional connections between human beings, their brief lives just a fleeting memory to the tortured souls of the two in question. So when a modern film comes forth, fronting a hauntingly real take on life co-existing with romance, many would usually run a mile. This is why Submarine is so unique and un- flinching in its presentation, it was made not to dictate but <more>
to reminisce, to inspire, to harness belief.As previously said, this is not a romance film, nor is it a love story, it's a charming tale of a young boy's brush with its radiant thorns and the repercussions it has within his mentally aged mind. A charming tale brought to life by former sitcom-star Richard Ayoade, an unexpected triumph both on paper and behind the camera. His light-yet-real approach to Joe Dunthorne's novel is simply majestic to watch, his artful touches shining through the lens and his playful British humour echoing through the words.It is both the fantastic performances and Dunthorne's sweet, sincere characters that the film rests upon, like an unmovable block of unbroken laughter, dramatically and comedically they are perfect. Craig Roberts' portrayal of the odd and pretentious teen Oliver Tate will surely never melt the hearts of the audience his creepy involvement with his parents' relationship giving him eerie edge but will capture their thoughts in a state of nostalgia and inspiration. His heartfelt voice-overs fill the picture with truth and his exaggerated weirdness is a sign of humanity and in-difference among the many, highlighting his alienation and truly bringing him into the centre of the entire story, allowing him to never be over-taken by Sally Hawkins' emotionally forgiving mother or Paddy Considine's deluded dancer.There are no heroes within the piece, but a horde of under-appreciated and rarely recognised talent that fit so beautifully together like an artfully complacent jigsaw. Dunthorne's material is so firmly polished and his characters so lovably believable and Ayoade's distinct, artistic style although owing to the likes of Mike Nichols and Woody Allen, as well as the French new-wave scene is a giant leap into cinematic originality. He truly has created something wonderful.Submarine is a unique and telling tale of teenage life, possibly the most truthful ever filmed, and Ayoade's fitting involvement allows it to be carefully broadcast into the minds of the many, un-spoilt and emotionally aware in its presentation. It's appeal will spread from similarly precocious teenagers to nostalgic seniors thanks to the not-to-distant-past setting, yanking away the technological nightmares that lay within modern romance and leaving behind the bare-bones of true life with love.In short, it's a triumphantly humorous and truthful take on young life with artful touches and is the best, most honest British film for a long, long time.
most original film you will see for along time (by thecinemapass)
If I was only allowed to recommend one film from the year so far, this would be it. Submarine documents the coming of age story of Oliver Tate, who is trying to lose his virginity before he turns 16 and keep his parents from splitting up.Although this is Richard Ayoade's debut feature film it is incredibly cinematic, with its picturesque shots of rural Wales and the use of Super-8 mm film, there isn't much Ayoade is afraid to do. The only downside to this film is the first half is a little boring as it is merely an introduction to the characters and situation. The second half is where <more>
the characters start to come out and you really start to enjoy the film.Like a lot of coming of age stories not much happens, but despite of this it is hilarious and you would be an idiot not to like it.read more reviews like this at www.thecinemapass.blogspot.com
'Submarine' is a wonderfully engaging film. Along with being very funny, It genuinely understands and insightfully explores, teen anxiety and communication/perception troubles. While watching it, I felt like I was experiencing the story first hand. As a result of an artfully made, endearing and enjoyable experience, the film gently implies a progressive and positive message. The film also shows the tremendous versatility and courage of filmmaker Richard Ayoade. 'Submarine' has created its own category, as it's quite different from Ayoade's brilliant TV comedies, It has <more>
a very unique, personal language and sensibility, which is equally thrilling and satisfying for the viewers. The casting is perfect as well, each actor makes their character ring with an authentic and lively human truth.A delight, Highly recommended!
Introduction to a potentially massive talent (by tomgillespie2002)
Whilst watching Richard Ayoade playing uber-nerd Moss in the hit-and- miss sitcom The IT Crowd, or playing TV producer and actor Dean Lerner in the criminally underrated Garth Merenghi's Darkplace, the last thing I pictured him doing was confidently directing a feature-length film. I don't mean to knock him, as I've always felt he was an extremely talented comedy performer and writer, and he brightens up whatever he appears in, no matter how crap the material. But here he has focused all his ambition, influences and talent into creating a truly memorable debut.Tate Craig Roberts <more>
, a strange, intelligent and unnervingly confident schoolboy who falls for an equally strange girl Jordana Yasmin Paige . After an incident which sees Oliver reluctantly participate in a spot of casual bullying that causes a girl to fall into a muddy pond, Oliver and Jordana begin their unusual romance. All seems to be going well until Oliver suspects his mother Jill Sally Hawkins of having an affair with cheesy self-help guru Graham Paddy Considine , who lives next door. His father Lloyd Noah Taylor is so passive and uncaring that he is practically a zombie, and so Oliver takes it upon himself to rescue his parent's broken marriage whilst holding his own fragile relationship together.The film arrives amidst critical praise and festival word-of-mouth, and the promise of a real future talent in director Richard Ayoade. I'm pleased to announce that the film is every bit as good as I've heard. I had my doubts, concerned with the film's 'quirky indie comedy' tag that films are so lazily lumbered with these days. But while the film is quirky, indie and a comedy, it finds its influences lying elsewhere - from the greatest of all film movements, the French New Wave. From the start this is clear with the Godard-esque large lettering with strong colours for the opening credits and title cards. Everything about the film screams New Wave, from its stylistic boldness, self-awareness, and even the unconventionally handsome and turtle-neck-wearing leading man.One of the main strengths of the film is it's awareness of slipping into cliché. The quirkiness and magic of the French New Wave have been copied and ripped-off so often that nowadays when it is used it can come across as pretentious. But Oliver's intelligence and amusing voice-over frequently touches on this. At the start of his relationship with Jordana, they spend their days on the beach and frequenting industrial wastelands, and Oliver comments that he will put these moments in his 'Super 8 memories', cue shots of the couple running and laughing on the beach, shot in that grainy, home-video look. He also fantasises that he is in a film, and that the film will end up with him searching for Jordana on a beach and how it will end in an arty-farty, pretentious manner aimed to encourage discussion among chin-strokers. It's a great little trick and you have to admire the film's refreshing self- assurance.The film is also very, very funny, with Craig Roberts proving an extremely talented comedy performer, all pale-skinned, wide-eyed awkwardness, and a pronounced, high pitched voice that almost resembles many of Ayoade's TV characters. The humour is often similar in style to Wes Anderson's dare I say it? indie comedies, which are some of the best comedies, if not films, to come out in the last fifteen years. Most of the humour stems from Oliver's increasing desperation to lose his virginity to Jordana, especially in one scene where they find themselves home alone, only for Oliver to light candles around his bed, and lie open-legged on his side in a cheesy pose. Jordana, with her eyes closed waiting for the surprise, opens them and deadpans 'f****n' hell, you're a serial killer.'A real gem, and a film that definitely introduces the potentially massive talent of director Richard Ayoade, star Craig Roberts, and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, who performs the wonderful music. And also a rare opportunity to see some of the beautiful sights of Swansea, where I currently reside.www.the-wrath-of-blog.blogspot.com
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 <more>
see it again. I hope Richard Ayoade starts working on another film soon, because I'm excited to see what else he can do.
Ayoade makes one of the finest debuts in years. (by dsjackson90)
There's nothing better than walking into a screen to see the debut film by a writer and director – one that you have only heard very little about – and walking away 90 minutes later feeling more moved, entertained and uplifted by a movie than you have been in years.Perhaps cinema-goers in the mid 1990s had this experience upon seeing Wes Anderson's first film Bottle Rocket. And maybe even those who witnessed Spike Jonze's big screen debut, Being John Malkovich, only a few years later will understand it too. However, for those of you who, like me, were too young to witness the <more>
birth of these auteurs of independent cinema then you don't have to worry, because Richard Ayoade's film Submarine is almost as good as both of them put together.It tells the story of Oliver Tate who is caught at the junction between childhood and adulthood as he struggles with his first feelings of love, desire, heartbreak and must choose what path he wishes to take that'll define who he is for the rest of his life.Sure, it may sound somewhat similar to all the coming-of-age stories that have hit the cinema recently, but what makes Submarine so special is Richard Ayoade's ability to capture the essence of growing up; the joy, the optimism and the tenderness alongside all the angst, confusion and depression too. I defy anyone to not see themselves plastered up on that silver screen in the film's opening as Oliver fantasises about the adoration and attention he'd receive if he died.The ups and downs of this British comedy are mainly due to Ayoade's wonderful screenplay and direction that are touching yet never slip into sentimentality - he often playfully pokes fun at it in many cases – but what also deserves credit are the poignant score by Arctic Monkey's singer Alex Turner, the cinematography that effortlessly shifts between comic framing and beautiful imagery and the note-perfect performances by the entire cast.Craig Roberts plays Oliver Tate in a star-making performance that will surely see him become one of Britain's finest young actors in the next few years. His character is a complex, multifaceted one yet he is able to make it wholly believable. Similarly outstanding is Yasmin Page as his love interest Jordana. It's essential to the story that she is a mystery to Oliver for much of Submarine's opening half, only revealing the reasons why she is so rebellious, unromantic and mischievous in the final act, and Page brilliantly portrays this with a careful mix of enigma, seductiveness and humanity.What also excels Ayoade's film from being just another British coming of age story is the stylishness of his direction. Presented in the fashion of a French New Wave film like Jules Et Jim or A Bout De Soufflé he gives Submarine an aurora of quirkiness and creativity that you rarely find in British cinema. The "kitchen sink" is gone and has been replaced by jump cuts, inventive sound design and a somewhat disjointedness.This style, moreover, helps to complement the personality of our aforementioned protagonist who sees the world in a unique way to everyone else.So what lies in the future for British cinema? Some could argue that it's the big dramas like The King's Speech, others could argue that it's the low budget affairs like Monsters and many will say that it's spectacles like Harry Potter. However, on the evidence that Richard Ayoade presents here, Submarine might just be a glimpse of the great things to come.
Fresh, funny and twisted turns to this quirky coming-of-age tale (by napierslogs)
"Submarine" is Welsh. It opens, at least in North America it does, with a letter from its protagonist Oliver to Americans; educating us that Wales is a country located next to England. Although thankful that America has not yet invaded his country, Oliver informs us that this is an important film which we should treat with the utmost respect.Don't worry, it's okay to laugh; you're supposed to. This is a teen coming-of-age comedy. Oliver Tate Craig Roberts is like a young, Welsh hero of a Wes Anderson film. Gangly and awkward he struggles with popularity in school, <more>
but when he imagines his own funeral, the entire country mourns. He bullies one girl to try and impress another but then writes a long letter not so much repenting his guilt but teaching her how to be cool. The dialogue, like Oliver, is precocious but hilarious with a surprisingly fresh feel considering how tired the genre has become.Oliver tries to win the girl and become the best boyfriend in the world, and he also has to be the best son in the world to save his parents' marriage. In both adventures, he uses psychology books usually found in routine searches of his parents' bedroom to ensure his actions accurately reflect his intentions. If you can guess how his plans may go awry, then you are the right audience for this very funny film.His father, Lloyd Noah Taylor is a depressed marine biologist, while his mother Jill Sally Hawkins is inappropriately attracted to their neighbour, an old boyfriend of hers. He's a mystic, theatrical performer, and Oliver and Lloyd are the only ones that see it for the nonsense that it is. Lloyd is like a grown-up, Welsh hero of a Wes Anderson film and I loved how they included the father of the protagonist as a main character and showed that although he was more mature, still not any more in tune with the ways of the world around him.It has some slightly dark twists, but "Submarine" succeeds because it never lets up the humour or the quirky tone. Funny? Yes. Important? No, but I certainly get the joke.
Now this has style. A style on the pessimistic teenage angst that comes through the voice-over, the grainy film, the blank expressions but a swirl of thoughts , oh, and the music. It gets everything right in my view.This is basically a come of age, love story that is told directly from the mind of a teenage British boy in the 70s. This one-line summary does not do it justice. This movie is so sure of itself, the vision as clear as the 16mm film it was shot on for the flashbacks. Sort of like The Graduate for the teenager genre.*spoiler* The story is told by ,Oliver Tate, the main character, <more>
is the rather the only romantic in a world of pessimism. And what happens when he meets Jordana and how he deals with this relationship and possible break-up of his family. It sounds simple, but it is the way, he conveys the struggle, in detail, from his POV that captures the feeling, the isolation, the possibility that fits his teenage thinking pattern that is brilliant. To an 'adult', these event possibly don't add up to much, but that's the point.
