‘A film as sweet as it is sad, as pertinent as it is absurd.’
‘Witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot, moving and even weirdly gripping.’
Ben Sharrock’s melancholic comedy Limbo is a funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience.
Omar is a promising young musician separated from his Syrian family and stuck on a remote Scottish island. Barred from working and forced to take ridiculous cultural-awareness classes, he awaits the fate of his asylum request.
The limitless landscape of the Scottish islands is expertly juxtaposed with the lack of options for oud-playing new arrival Omar. With pitch perfect wit and crisp observation, Limbo shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a refugee crisis that most of us only experience through headlines.
