Tortoise in Love (12a)

Director Guy Browning Comedy

Tortoise in Love is a mainstream British romantic comedy with an unusual story because it was made by an entire village in Oxfordshire. The WI did the catering, the local salon opened early for hair and make-up and villagers put up the cast and crew in their homes. The amazing story of The Village that Made the Film has attracted substantial media attention since it started. And the film? … Tom, gardener at the big house, is not a fast mover with women. In fact he's glacially slow. When beautiful Polish au pair Anya arrives for the summer, Tom falls for her catastrophically like the felling of one of the giant trees he cares for in the manicured grounds.

Starring Tom Mitchelson, Alice Zawadzki, Tom Yates, Stephen Elder, Ivan Kaye & Lesley Staples

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Absolutely Fabulous! All who were there thoroughly enjoyed it.

This film went down very well with our audience earning a round of applause at the end.

Our audience loved it and voted 10/10 without hesitation. One lady said it was wonderful to be able to enjoy an innocent film. We want more.
