Critic Reviews for Downhill

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

A sweetly maudlin directorial debut from James Rouse, it features winning turns from Richard Lumsden (as team leader Gordon), Karl Theobald (as best buddy about to drop a bombshell Keith) and Ned Dennehy (as drunken spice Julian).

Torben Betts' screenplay for this engaging, quintessentially British road/rambling movie combines knockabout comedy with surprisingly bleak observations about the way the men's lives have all veered off course.

A grey, farty plod, with increasingly little to sustain it bar the scenery.

Often witty and provocative, if occasionally a little heavy on its feet, this will have men of a certain age nodding sagely.

Downhill is a home-grown treat, and the perfect solution to anyone seeking an alternative to the preponderance of overblown blockbusters on screens big and small.

The transition from comedy to gently revelatory drama is nicely handled in James Rouse's engaging low-budget film.
