Unusual comedy/drama that works. Enjoyable.
17 July 2014 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Borrowed Time is a strange mix of drama and comedy with a rather uneven script which sometimes veers too much between the two genres. However it is a film that tries to be different and there are more than enough highlights to make it more of a hit than a miss.

This is in no small part down to a really strong cast. Philip Davis is an excellent actor and he really shines in this as the disillusioned and brow beaten ex teacher. Also impressive is Theo Barklem-Biggs as the slow witted but gentle unemployed youth and Warren Brown as the thug. The actors really bring the characters to life.

There are some good moments of comedy and these are interspersed with some good observational drama. It really shouldn't work but somehow it does and it turns into an unexpected treat.

This is a low budget and unusual film but a very good one. Well worth watching.
