NZIFF: Submarine

Oh god this is a gorgeous movie. Set in bleak 1980's Swansea it follows neurotically wide eyed Oliver Tait in his depressed pursuit of love and holding his parents sexless marriage together. Add a smouldering hot black haired vixen bad girl and a genuinely authentic cool is formed that is as tender as it is hilarious, this really is a beautiful coming of age movie.

Welsh school boy banter may well be the funniest on earth.

Oliver's existential angst over love and sex can only be sorted once he saves his Mother from an extramarital affair with a new age ninja silver fox who moves next door. The confession of a handjob by the Mother in the back of his souped up space van should win most magical moment in Welsh film history.

4 stars
