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.

    "It's an absolute delight thanks to a warm and witty script, smart, no-nonsense direction and spot-on - and occasionally priceless - turns from a cast comprised largely of unknowns, aside from one lovely old lag."

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

    "A sweet-natured character study that's altogether charming...."

  • Highest Rating
    "With its likability overshadowing the dark side of UK urban drama, Borrowed Time is a refreshing change."

    "...a winning, odd-couple heartwarmer."
