Very funny, very clever, very under-rated film
Like Paul Cameron of York, I too taped this film and enjoyed it many times over the years - until I accidentally threw the tape out.
An excellent "road movie" featuring Karl and his girlfriend Ellie (Lena Headey) which takes place mainly on foot in a coast to coast walk between Preston and Whitby in the north of England. Parallel plots weaved into the theme involve Marco, a rich Italian orphan searching for his Yorkshire roots, a love affair between Ellie
and Marco and the progress of the England and Italy teams through the 1970 World Cup Finals.
Please please please can somebody re-schedule this during this World Cup or release it on DVD.
