Tortoise In Love Review

Image for Tortoise In Love

Tom (Tom Mitchelson) is a gardener working at a country pile in the village of Bagpuize. Handsome but diffident, he's knocked off his stride by the arrival of beautiful Polish au pair Anya (Alice Zawadzki). Will he be able to get past his shyness to woo her?

★★★★★

A notable collective effort by the villagers of Kingston Bagpuize and full of corny gags raising gentle smiles, this tale of a bashful gardener besotted with a Polish au pair is a sweet, genial throwback to the romantic comedies of yore.

This gently off-beat romance may boast more corn than a packed silo in summer but it's got a tender heart and charm to spare.
