The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain
When an English cartographer arrives in Wales to tell the residents of the Welsh village of Ffynnon Garw that their "mountain" is only a hill, the offended community sets out to remedy the situation. The film is based on a story heard by Christopher Monger from his grandfather about the real village of Taff's Well, in the old county of Glamorgan, and its neighbouring Garth Hill. However, due to 20th century urbanisation of the area, it was filmed in the more rural Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant and Llansilin areas in Powys.

(ru) wrote: Decent, but I think it could've been better. Maybe it was my annoyance at the the whiny villains that made this so hard for me to enjoy. I didn't expect the ending to be such a downer, so I'll give Walker credit for that. I suppose with a story like this it would've been wrong to end it any other way, especially considering the "moral" we're given at the end.
(jp) wrote: A cosmopolitan and sophisticated film about desire and the sometimes unintelligible rules and codes governing its fulfillment, this film is a brilliant, thought-provoking masterpiece which draws on surrealism, terrorism, and Freudianism.
