Critic Reviews for Limbo
The movie could easily fall into a bland sentimental routine from there, but Sharrock's irreverent tone turns Farhad's journey into a strange and involving one.
The film thrusts us into this forgotten, snow-lashed corner of the world where a gaggle of lost souls are dumped, awaiting visas. The oddities of islander life are as bemusing to these new arrivals as they are in turn to the largely friendly locals.
When the film pushes the droll humour of the situation, it actually serves to emphasise the internalised pain suffered by the various characters we follow.
While there's little disputing Sharrock's empathy for his dislocated, stranded characters... there's something rather limited about his alteration of dry fish-out-of-water gags and scenes of people staring forlornly into the barren middle distance.
