"Witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot, moving and even weirdly gripping."
★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"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."
★★★★★ Stephen A. Russell, Time Out

"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."
★★★★ Eric Kohn, indieWire

Limbo is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centers on Omar (Amir El-Masry), a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather's oud, the king of Arabic music instruments, which he has carried all the way from his homeland.
