7.16.13 … The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain: “But . . . who measured the first mountain?”

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 …

“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).

The people in this movie are so crazy they could only be real.
