Storyline

When a Canadian Atlantic coast fishing village is threatened with the loss of all of its fishing rights, local reverend (and mayor) Augustus Knickel finds a way to fight back. Relying on an obscure clause in an ancient treaty, he declares the village as an independent republic! He also finds a way to back up those words: by buying an abandoned Russian nuclear submarine from the most senior officer still aboard (namely, the cook.)

2 Reasons to watch
1 October 1999 | by (Toronto, ON) – See all my reviews

Two things make 'Buried on Sunday' worth watching:

1) When Louis Del Grande picks his nose during a Privy Council meeting.

2) When Tommy Sexton spontaneously combusts and tries to put out the fire using Vodka.

Both of which were based on real life events, infusing this film with a dark sense of gritty realism.
