Amir El-Masry, Sidse Babett Knudsen Rated PG Run time 103 mins
Superlative film-making which is witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot. It is moving, even gripping.
Limbo concerns refugees and asylum seekers in Britain – specifically a bleak and starkly beautiful Scottish island where they wait for official word on whether they can stay.
A clever mix of comedy and reality but mostly a touching reminder of what humanity means.
92% – Rotten Tomatoes 7.2/10 – IMDB
“colliding tones are Limbo’s bread and butter: here, naturalism and broad comedy go hand in hand, in a film simultaneously sad and funny. “
“The film is laced with deadpan absurdism, with a touch of Yorgos Lanthimos, but more surreal: there are racist wheel-spinners, a woman with a dolphin’s head, and a stolen chicken named Freddie Mercury. “
