The Remains of the Day

Well-told story of repressed love

The Remains of the Day

James Ivory 1980, UK, 124 mins.

Based on Kazuo Ishigura's prize-winning novel, this film shows us the working life of the Anthony Hopkins character as he remembers his years as the butler of an aristocrat who involved himself in the German-British politics of the inter-war years. Emma Thompson co-stars as the housekeeper Stevens employs and then, perhaps, falls a little bit in love with -- we don't really know, and nor does he. A rich, multi-layered plot, first class performances and stylish production make this a very satisfying film.
