Funny, believable, and a happy ending with no saccharine
7 September 2011 | by john-powell227See all my reviews

The best movie I have seen this year. Whilst I'm sure more in depth reviews will find flaws I was completely won over by this film.

Great writing, genuinely funny. For me , very evocative of an English childhood. Super performances from the entire cast.

Hilarious turn from Paddy Considine (he is never in a duff movie!).

I think this small budget movie deserves to become a DVD cult hit.

Very entertaining.

As a rule I don't buy DVDs as they sit on the shelf for years before a second look.

I will be making an exception for Submarine.

Bravo!
