Time for Love

Available until 19 September 2021.

What would you do for love? Mikołaj barely hesitates before he abandons his lowly job handing out leaflets dressed as a snowball and hops on a train in pursuit of the woman of his dreams (who has just walked by). Once aboard, we’re met with a wryly amusing and sometimes surreal series of loosely connected encounters and incidents, involving such as a pair of lost children, a tyrannical ticket inspector, a man with a child’s coffin, a compartment full of tough nuts and a runaway mouse. 

Beautifully lit and shot, Columbian director Miguel J. Vélez’s first feature is a highly theatrical stab at reinventing that tried-and-tested cinema trope – ‘strangers on a train’. And he succeeds. The action is sprightly, the characters likeable, the mood hopeful and the outcome satisfying. 

The films are free for members.  If you want to watch the films and are not a member, then we're happy for you to do so but please consider becoming a member (only £12 while we're only online) or donating £5 to help cover costs. Check our website for details.
