The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain (1995)



Reviews and Comments

A gem of a British comedy that dares to be neither obvious nor melodramatic (a rare feat for the nineties), and, in its restraint, becomes all the more compelling. The film finds honor, pride, and importance where one would not generally look for such things. If there's a moral, it's to seek, find, and cherish the grandeur of the simpler things in life. Before I start sounding too much like a high brow critic, I'll conclude by saying that Englishman is a delightful film, with sincerity, charm, and subtle humor.
