Remains Of The Day is very slow, but for me there was something about it I really enjoyed. I don't know if it was because it was a period drama, the actors or the story. There is something in this movie for me that I actually really enjoy it, as I said it is a slow drama and some people won't be able to get through it. I loved Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins, who are polar opposites but share gr... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Back in those days, James Ivory was pretty much at the top of his game and following the massive critical of ‘Howards End’, he was going back with pretty much the same team including producer Ismail Merchant and once again Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson playing the leads.

View all The Remains of the Day reviews
A rule bound head butler's world of manners and decorum in the household he maintains is tested by the arrival of a housekeeper who falls in love with him in post-WWI Britain. The possibility of romance and his master's cultivation of ties with the Nazi cause challenge his carefully maintained veneer of servitude.

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Back in those days, James Ivory was pretty much at the top of his game and following the massive critical of ‘Howards End’, he was going back with pretty much the same team including producer Ismail Merchant and once again Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson playing the leads. To be honest, I think I had a slight preference for this flick because it was easier to digest but both movies are some of the best in the genre, some kind of costume drama taking place in the 30’s. I usually don’t care much for the ‘difficult’ life of the upper-class back in those days and it was quite refreshing to have a movie focusing on the servants for once. Eventually, it becomes clear that” read more

“Remains Of The Day is very slow, but for me there was something about it I really enjoyed. I don't know if it was because it was a period drama, the actors or the story. There is something in this movie for me that I actually really enjoy it, as I said it is a slow drama and some people won't be able to get through it. I loved Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins, who are polar opposites but share great chemistry. If you like English period dramas, you most likely will enjoy this movie. If you can't stand slow drawn out drama's, than don't bother with this film but for me it was a good movie.” read more

"Anthony Hopkins Anthony Hopkins inhabits the role of Stevens, the head butler of Darlington Hall in the 1930’s. Considered by many to be the “perfect” servant, he is an absolutely loyal and tireless worker, suppressing his own needs and emotions in favor of a call of duty. Commanding an army of cooks, butlers, and maids, Stevens demonstrates a fierce commitment to order. At one critical moment, he responds, “It’s not my place to have an opinion.” Portraying a character who tirelessl"
