Director Thomas Vinterberg has created one of the finest films of the year. Submarino is a wintry, hard-hitting account of two brothers haunted by tragic events in their childhood and seemingly doomed to continue a cycle of violence and abuse. It may sound heavy going but the reality is a deeply involving almost spiritual tale of their anguished struggles. Older brother Nick (Jakob Cedergen) is an angry young man living in a shelter. The younger brother (Peter Plaugborg) is a widower, striving to prove to himself and the world that he is a good father to his son Martin (Fischer Kjaerulff) even as he fails to conquer his heroin addiction. Powerful performances, humour, compassion and a deeply felt, deeply human story make Submarino*3 unmissable. *3Part of Glasgow Film Festival
