Storyline

The Fitzroy is a live action black comedy set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950s. The world is covered in poisonous gas, and the last place for a traditional seaside holiday is The Fitzroy hotel, an abandoned submarine just off the coast of England. The film centers on Bernard, the hotel's bellboy, cook, maintenance man and general dogsbody, as he faces a constant battle to keep the decaying hotel airtight and afloat. But when he falls in love with a murderous guest, he is thrown into a mad day of lies, backstabbing and chaos. As Bernard struggles to hide her murders from the other guests and suspicious authorities, his world literally begins to sink around him. Written by Andrew Harmer

Pretty good
6 January 2019 | by Jaspa1982See all my reviews

This is a British low budget film, a quirky, post apocalyptic comedy, brilliantly and interestingly shot. Reminds me of a Wes Anderson movie, although doesn't have the level of artistry of his work, just the influence of the look and feel.

It's the tone of the film that really plays - the direction, the acting, the photography, production design and the music, it all fits and works well together. It makes the film feel professionally and solidly handled despite obviously having a small budget. The performances from the unknown cast are absurd and over the top, but that's the point with this type of comedy.

No stars, no money, few locations. You know the drill. But will you like this film? A comedy has to be funny. But funny is so subjective. If you like Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and that sort of British humour you might like this. Just don't expect the brilliance of those classics, but a take on the genre and you may find yourself laughing like I did.
