Alle tijd (2011) is a Dutch film shown in the United States with the title Time to Spare. The movie was written and directed by Job Gosschalk.

This is an interesting film, although somewhat melodramatic. Paul de Leeuw plays Maarten, a middle-aged gay man who is suffering from empty nest syndrome. In this case, the person leaving the nest is not his daughter, but his younger sister Molly (Karina Smulders). Their parents are dead, so Maarten's relationship to Molly is more like a father than a brother.

The film has two plot lines. One is Molly's inability to choose between two men, both of whom she says she loves. The other is Maarten's realization that he can now have a long-term relationship with a gay man. (He didn't--and doesn't--feel comfortable living with another man when Molly is in the home.)

The two actors are both excellent. It's not their fault that the plot is soggy and somewhat unbelievable. They work with what they have, and they work well. However, I thought the best actor in the movie was Lineke Rijxman as Reina, the loyal family friend that every family needs.

I don't think this is a film worth seeking out. However, if you're at a film festival, and this movie is playing, it would be reasonable to walk into the theater and watch it.

Time to Spare was shown at the Little Theatre as part of the exemplary ImageOut--the Rochester LGBT Film & Video Festival.
