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 adviser in matters of the heart is young 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.
This didn't feel like a movie. . . it was more like a Sunday afternoon drama, with a subpar Hugh Grant clone in the main role. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't that good, and very slow, and the laughs were thin on the ground for being billed as a comedy, more likely to raise a wry smile a few times than give you any belly laughs.
