The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain, quotes, kith/kin: This line in the movie reminded me of one of children’s questions as a 5-year-old. Fun movie, quirky, not great …
“But . . . who measured the first mountain?” a local wonders.
“The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain” is a movie with the same charms as “Local Hero” (in which Scottish townspeople conspired to outfox visiting Americans). That it is “true” adds only to the charm, and at the film’s end, when we see an actual stone set on the site at the time of the Ordnance Wars, that seems entirely appropriate. The people in this movie are so crazy they could only be real.
And if you want to see where the “mountain” is, here is the google link: Google Maps.
