Critic Reviews for Back to the Garden

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

An improvised, no-budget British drama with the cringe factor of watching your mum doing am-dram.

Top Critic

Extended takes allow the cast (rooted in 70s alternative theatre) to improvise conversations with naturalistic results; discussions about grief, marriage, faltering love and mistimed connections ring true.

The problem is that the protagonists are so unengaging.

This is a minor-key film: delicate, sober and thoughtful.

March 13, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film needed more heat and fluency, more inter-melting of components.

Shallow insights in the long grass make for a dozy yet irritating afternoon in the Kent countryside.
