A real gem
13 November 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I found this film by accident, had it for a while and watched it today while I had a little time to myself. I was not sure what to expect, never having seen the trailer or reviews, so I guess I came to it with an open mind. I'm glad I did. This is an extremely well crafted piece of work. The low-key but brilliantly delivered acting, together with an intriguing lead character provides a delightful change from the mainstream Hollywood offerings. In a way I found myself thinking of another understated film I saw recently; Sparrows Dance. Both films are character, rather than plot- based. Both provide thoughtful and insightful engagement with the protagonists, and lead the viewer to empathise with their vicissitudes of life. At just an hour long, Meanwhile provides a challenge to other film makers; tell your story in the time it needs, not the time it takes. An excellent film - one of my favourites.
