Movie Info

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. Tom's adviser in matters of the heart is young Harry, abandoned by the rich owners of the house to run wild in the gardens. Harry's secret wish is for the Red Arrows to appear at the village fair: Tom's is to win the heart of Anya. Both seem impossible dreams until the whole village decides to lend a hand.

It's sharper than your average Britcom, and perfectly charming, so you'll forgive a bit of amateurism and wooden acting.

I think I could forgive the woeful script and the woeful characters and woeful performances if it weren't for all the horribly tedious sexism.

There's an easy charm about Guy Browning's debut film Tortoise in Love that is not only set in Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire, but whose community members became involved in its making

A decidedly old fashioned film that has a big heart in many of the right places despite its modest means.

Rather less fun than a saucy Women's Institute calendar.

It's gentle, well-meaning, a bit watery.
