Latest Submarine Movie is a Winner, of shorts! Review by M.E.

23 March 2011 - INM - Submarine Action Film Sinks Competition

Das Tub is a Das Boot spoof created by students at the Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand. This U-Boat's crew is attacked in methods defying conventional submariner experiences. In the clip (below) the sub apparently resorts to a periscopic colonoscopy!

A tongue-in-cheek student short film that pays homage to submarine action films has been selected as an international finalist at the Aspen Shortsfest in Colorado – considered one of the world’s top 50 film festivals.


Here is a short YouTube of Das Tub, for the curious.
.
M.E.'s Review
Acting - superb; convincing, professional *****/5
Plot - thin; well-suited perhaps to the very junior wardroom crowd/nubs **/5
Soundtrack - another surprise; original ****/5
Cinematography - well done ****/5
.
Submarines are always silent and strange.
