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
