Black Mountain Poets :- Watch Black Mountain Poets on Youtube on Fire, Best film of the 2015 Edinburgh Film Festival for me was an ultra-low-budget British comedy set in a poets’ camping retreat in the Black Mountains of Wales – ‘Black Mountain Poets’. Claire and Lisa are sisters and lorry thieves. Escaping from their most recent bungled robbery they wind up pretending to be ‘beat poets’ at the afore-mentioned retreat. While there they both fall for the smouldering charms of Richard (Tom Cullen from ‘Downton Abbey’), make a mess of putting up tents and hear lots of bad poetry. The film certainly isn’t original: earnest poets are a wide-open goal for any comedy scriptwriter, and it will surprise no-one that our two anti-heroines Learn Important Life Lessons and that at least one of them discovers her inner muse. But it’s so good-natured, with dialogue that often sounds improvised, but not in that embarrassing actors-not-sure-what-to-do way, and it contains some good performances particularly from Dolly Wells (of ‘Doll and Em’ fame) and Alice Lowe, who really spark off each other as Claire and Lisa. Goodness knows if the film will get a wide – or any – distribution, but if it does, try to see it – you’ll leave the cinema with a smile on your face. Lisa and Claire are sisters who are petty con artists and would be digger thieves. After an uninspired heist goes a bit awry they decide to go on the run…..to Wales. However, their cunning plan involves them assuming the roles of Internationally renowned sister poets – The Wilding Sisters, and go off to a poetry retreat in the Black Mountains of Wales.
