Tortoise in Love is set in the beautiful English countryside of the Vale of the White Horse in Oxfordshire.
The warm-hearted humour of the film is reflected in the unique story of its making: almost the entire village of Kingston Bagpuize in Oxfordshire has been involved in everything from production and costume design to locations and catering.
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 advisor in matters of the heart is young lad 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.

I have to say this was the worst film I think I have ever seen. A very poor story line with no substance whatsoever and pretty bad acting. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mrs Bridges, Hampshire
Bought the DVD to see the local scenes and friends who were extras in it. The story line was totally predictable and I found it slow moving and boringPublished 18 months ago by DawnRosa
Loved this very English film. Relaxed and funny, knew how it would end but that was part of its beauty!Published 22 months ago by anniehop
I had wanted to see Tortoise in Love when it was shown at the Southend Film Festival but missed the opportunity, so was delighted when I happened across a copy in a charity shop. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Gadfly
Excellent British romcom. I cant believe a village created such a brilliant film on such a low budget. Just shows that us Brits can do a really good job when people pull together. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Helen Redfern
