Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wow!  Apr 23, 2010
The book and this movie are complimentary. Anthony Hopkins nailed the part, as did Emma Thompson. However, it is Hopkins character that is the lead and from whose vantage point the story in told.

Check my review of the book by the same name to find out more details as to the story line.

Get both the book and the movie. Watch the movie first and then read the book. The book is narrative and having Hopkins voice in your mind while you read enhances the enjoyment.
Unfulfilled Dreams  Feb 15, 2010
There is just something about this movie. It is one that you either love or hate, be bored with or sucked in by, one that will make you think about it and the feeling you're left with long after it's over or one you'll never remembering seeing.

For me, it was all the best things.

It's a movie that those of us who have reached a certain age can truly sympathize with on a gut level many of us grow older and often think about missed opportunities, realizing one day that all the chances of fulfilling the dreams you had as girl (or boy) have long passed and are never coming true...and that even second chances don't always pan out the way we want them too...

Herein lies the cruel fate of our heroine, Ms. Kenton.

The movie for me, as a woman, is about Ms. Kenton and the choices she made, along with the ones she didn't, but perhaps should have.

As you travel through the movie, you are hopeful that Stevens has realized what he lost and is willing to step out of his comfort zone and crippling fear to finally live his life and confess his love for Ms. Kenton when they meet again.

But Stevens is so far gone that he can only imagine his life with ms. Kenton if she is back under the roof of Darlington Hall, where the salvation of safety and security lie. But due to recent circumstances, this cannot be, and so he retreats back into his solitary world leaving Ms. Kenton alone once again.

There are 2 last scenes for me in this movie. The first, Ms. Kenton crying as the bus pulls away from Stevens, taking with it all her unfulfilled dreams.

And then there are the last moments of the film. And it is here I go back to my opening paragraph about how you will either get this movie or you won't.

The Trapped Pigeon
For me, it represented all who came and went through doors of Darlington Hall.
In the end, Stevens helps push the bird out of the house, aiding in it's escape, something he was never able to do for himself.

But Ms. Kenton escaped - a scary and uncertain flight it was, but one that is necessary in life.

True, the risk pays off for some and not for others, but we can't just stand still; we have to move on, even though we may not end up in the place we had wished for in the dreams of our youth.

Seller Responsibility  Feb 15, 2010
The seller was very quick and thorough in correcting an unfortunate oversight. This used VHS had reception problems and was returned. The transaction was very cordial and understanding (on both sides). Refund was immediate, including return postage.
Remains of the Day  Jan 28, 2010
As a collector of Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson movies, I found that this fit right in. Period piece of servants in an English Manor during WWII. Well written, well acted, definitely worth the awards it received.
This remains one of my favorite films of all time...  Dec 2, 2009
You can pretty much copy and paste my review for `Howards End' here and call it a day since my feelings for both films is pretty much identical. Both films possess this air of elegance that just engulfs every scene and creates this strength and profound character. I may prefer this film `slightly' but really, both films are just utterly brilliant, and effortlessly so. I think that is what is so spellbinding about these two movies, they are effortless. There is no sign of overreaching or forced gracefulness. Every single frame floats by with a restrained tension that just uplifts the entire film and delivers a beautiful piece of art to our eyes and ears, and most importantly, our hearts.

Consider this film perfection.

The story told here is of a butler and housekeeper in England as World War II is looming over the shoulders of everyone around. The film is basically a brooding study of human loyalties and the longing for a feeling of accomplishment. Stevens, the butler, is a man filled with repressed emotions because of his determination to do his job perfectly. He restricts himself, making many sacrifices in order to hold onto the feeling of control and pride. It's not a selfish or a detrimental pride (at least not detrimental in the usual sense) but a pride that comes from being able to say you have done something to the best of your ability. His relationship with the headstrong and rather liberal Miss Kenton tests his viewpoint and his methods.

Draped in luscious scenery and woven tightly into a profound and provocative storyline, `The Remains of the Day' will remain in your soul.

It lingers.

The film is propelled marvelously by the two leads, Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. Hopkins in particular is just brilliant here, showcasing his characters inner emotional frustration as he makes himself the proper representation of loyal service. It's a gargantuan on a performance, a pure tour-de-force that had no business losing the Oscar to Tom Hanks' hammy gimmick in `Philadelphia'. In fact, if it wasn't for Russell Crowe delivering one of the most fearlessly committed performances I've ever seen in `Romper Stomper', I'd give Hopkins my personal award for this. Thompson matches him with so much heart, warmth and spirit. I struggle with category placement with her (she totally supports him, but she needs no support herself) but either way, she is sublime.

They really NEED to do another movie together!

If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing this (or the splendid `Howards End') I highly, HIGHLY recommend you seek them out this instant. They are beautiful films that match their internal composition with richly organic performances and sumptuous scenery that just begs to be seen and worshiped.

These are better than modern masterpieces, they are modern miracles!
