Critic Reviews for Mind the Gap

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (13)

The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite.

The performances are solid, even when the roles are aggressively whimsical.

Top Critic

There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium.

You can see what's coming five minutes into the movie, but capable acting lends it a certain superficial charm.

Audience Reviews for Mind the Gap

Interesting movie I happen to catch by chance. Good movie concerning a small group of seemingly unrelated people and how unique, exciting, dreadful and different life can be.


I really love movies that share stories about people and how crazy, wonderful, and insufferable life can be. This is one of the best of those.
