Sub (2000)

Sub is an exquisitely-timed, hysterically funny, stunningly expressive story of one sunny afternoon in a cool Italian plaza.
It's a strange short: a spare dialogue, a striking illustrative style and a decidedly red aesthetic. Someone will see in the short the decline of the Soviet Empire or a treatise on the vulgarization of mass culture and the decline of religiosity.

I'm not sure if it's simply a surreal short about the crew of a miniature submarine attempting to save their captain from being splattered about the ground of a European plaza but I'm sure this film will fascinate you for its inventiveness, its dynamic editing, its continual narrative surprises but most of all for its subversive humor.
