Sublime is one of my favourite independent films of 2022. All the elements of great movie making, magically come together in this very realistic coming of age film from Argentina.
The first thing I appreciated about this film (compared to similar North American films),is that the actors look like the age they are playing. All the young actors that make up the majority of the cast, were extremely believable and relatable. The lead actor Martin Miller who plays "Manu", was completely in the moment from beginning to end. He is a likeable character, that held the story together.
The script was perfect and the use of dreams to communicate the subconscious, was very well down.
I liked everything about this movie, but my absolute favourite part was the music. Most of the main characters were playing live music throughout the entire film. Whoever did the Audio for this film, did a masterful job.
The final thing I will say, is that this is a movie that anyone can watch. The lead character maybe gay, but it is not what I would call a typical "Gay" movie. I would say it is actually a film about discovering real love for another person, who you have been close to for a long time.
I hope this film gets released on Blu-ray disc and not only DVD. Such a high quality film deserves to get a Blu-ray disc release!!!
Manuel (16) lives in a small coastal town. He plays bass in a band with his best friends. One of them is Felipe, with whom he shares a strong friendship from a very young age.

But when it comes time to have their first time together, Manuel feels something completely new that makes him see things with different eyes.
