  • 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.

  • A sweet-natured character study that's altogether charming, if not exactly hard-edged.

  • Thankfully, Bishop's debut is anything but maudlin.

  • Borrowed Time does have its heart in the right place and you'll happily invest in the likeable lead characters.
