Storyline

When the National Gallery in London is flooded the Director, Quentin Lester, decides to transfer the entire collection to the Welsh caves where the collection was stored during World War II. The entire operation is supposed to be secret and the cover story is that they are a mining company looking to reopen the mines, good news to the economically depressed town nearby. It takes local school teacher, Angharad Stanner, all of a day however to learn what is really going on. She soon has the entire school at the site taking a tour but Quentin's refusal to open any of the packing crates leads to something of a falling out. Gradually, Quentin gets to know the locals, particularly the Hughes family. In the end, everyone benefits and learns from each other. Written by garykmcd

Delightful!
3 December 2011 | by lacrosserSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be absolutely delightful and a perfect weld between privileged society and the average everyday person. I loved the children in the movie - their ingenuity and wit. The adults characters were also well done. Mr. Davis' character was touching, especially his reaction to the painting of the boats. As you got to know each character in the movie you became more endeared to the town and to human nature. The movie made me laugh as well. I loved the part about Mr. Davis and his thoughts on liver. These days it's very hard to find entertainment that is enjoyable and easy to watch. It was an excellent movie in that it showed how art inspires and changes people, and makes life better. There was a lot of heart and depth in that little Welsh town, and it rubbed off on the art expert who came to stay for a while. I would watch this type of movie any day, over the titillating, violent rubbish that's out there. Kudos to those who still know how to make an awesome viewing experience!
