Downhill is a beautifully observed tragicomedy.
From beginning to end it is full of insight and humour.
A wonderful British treat.

Oh dear. I was SO disappointed with this low-budget, poorly produced film that promised so much, and delivered so little. As someone who has completed Wainwright's Coast To Coast walk three times, I was looking for the scenes to at least make an attempt to follow the actual walk itself. In actual fact the producer has been lazy and has used random locations that do not follow the actual "legs" of the walk. One laughable moment is when the group is supposed to be in Reeth, and are shown walking down a narrow street, on the wall to the right you will see, if you are sharp eyed, a sign saying "Keld". So the day they were supposed to be filming the Keld - Reeth leg, they couldn't be bothered to actually go to Reeth! The storyline, which is basically about four middle age men's lives imploding in various ways is weak and the acting is unconvincing. A few laughs can be had out of the film but it's so amateurish I can hardly believe it's been commercially released.

At last: a British comedy with real soul, many laugh-out-loud moments but with a seam of tragedy running all the way through it. Better than WITHNAIL AND I but with the same qualities: memorable one-liners and brilliant acting. Unlike that film this analyses the failures and foibles of the middle aged man rather than two drunken wannabe 20-something actor so the pathos is that more poignant. While not a great deal happens (four old friends reunite to do Wainwright's coast to coast walk) DOWNHILL bears repeated viewings due to the detailed quality of the writing and the utterly believable performances. Have now watched it three times in two weeks. This is a real gem of a movie that is sure to become a cult classic. Loved it!!!

I absolutely love this film and am quite gutted that I missed it in the cinema. It is very insightful, warm yet hilarious and far too short.I could have carried on watching just to see how each individual character continues their own little life story. A great British film.

I absolutely loved this film; initially bought because I walked the Coast to Coast 30 years ago as a teenager and wanted a nostalgic trip down memory lane. It delivered that but so much more. Hugely funny and at times terribly sad, a beautiful examination of mid-life crisis, friendship and the struggles of living life in your late 40s with the echoes of one's youthful dreams and aspirations still ringing in the ears....... all from four very different viewpoints. A film I think I will return to again and again.

OMG, the trailers were funny enough, but the film, well worth watching. I won't tell you the story, but its based on the capers of four mid-life crisis men trying to recapture their long left behind youth....

Rarely have I enjoyed a movie so much. A truly great British comedy well up there with Withnail and I. A bonus was the beautiful cinematography which used the Lake District scenery to full effect. Strongly recommended.
Why was this film not shown in my local cinema? A real indictment on the state of the cinema in Britain.
