I remember watching this film in a lavish independent theatre, on a sunny afternoon. Spending a sunny afternoon in movie theatre with a sunny movie was delightful. I was heartened by such a pleasingly pleasant movie.
Confused by the title? Maybe, but don’t be put off. Here we have a delightfully simple film.
In 1917 two English map makers (played by Hugh Grant and Ian McNeice), go to a Welsh village to measure the famous landmark. Is it a hill or a mountain? Within the plethora of events, romance blossoms. Good entertainment with great performances, about the trivial becoming more than a pursuit and the identity of a village.
