Movie Info

The story of two totally contrasting figures who come together in the most hostile of circumstances, only to form an unlikely bond that will help them both find a way out of their respective troubles. It is a bittersweet comedy about growing up and rediscovering youth in parallel, united by the subconscious desire to seek out the missing elements in their lives.

  • The dialogue is mostly spry, the ending inventive. And Barklem-Biggs, who initially overdoes the feckless cretin routine, grows into his role beautifully.

  • It exudes a certain low-key, pootling charm, but often gets sloppy: who casts Perry Benson as a middle-class snob?.

  • Bishop's debut feature wants to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone, both entirely admirable aims, but doesn't quite cut it as a work of cinema.

    September 12, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a mess through and through.

    September 12, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A sweet-natured character study that's altogether charming, if not exactly hard-edged.

    September 10, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • With its likability overshadowing the dark side of UK urban drama, Borrowed Time is a refreshing change.
