Stevens is the perfect English butler. Now employed by Mr Lewis, the new American owner of Darlington Hall, Stevens has spent the best part of his working life serving Lord Darlington, the host of many prestigious international conferences in the 1930s. It was only when war broke out in 1939, that Lord Darlington's involvement with the Nazi party was uncovered.

Now, twenty years later, Stevens realizes that his unquestioning faith and dedication to duty were misplaced, and cost him dearly in his own personal life. Over several years, he carried on an intense relationship with the Estate's attractive young housekeeper, Miss Kenton. But his unwavering sense of duty led Stevens to deny his emotions – and eventually drive away the one woman he loved. Now he wants to make amends...

An extraordinary story of blind emotion and repressed love, The Remains Of The Day achieved an astounding 8 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress. Anthony Hopkins received the BAFTA Award for the Best Performance by an actor in a leading role.

A heartbreaking study of a life lived in the service of others, at the total expense of one's own desires with heartbreaking performances from Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in the Merchant Ivory adaption of the Kazuro Ishiguro novel.

Stevens the Butler has devoted his entire life to the service of his masters at Darlington Hall. Without complaint, without thought of anything else. Until the arrival of Miss Kenton. A young woman with whom he develops an undeniable connection. As world events change life at Darlington Hall, Stevens must face choices that his old-fashioned sense of duty leave him ill-prepared to make.

A tragedy in all but name this is all about NOT wasting what chances life can present us with when we have them because of misplaced priorities. Eventually, the day runs short, and those chances disappear. Leaving only the regret at what might have been.

Hopkins and Thompson dominate the screen, and were rightly Oscar nominated for their work together. There's also a wealth of past and future famous names (a pre-'Four Weddings' Hugh Grant, the late Christopher Reeve, 'Sarah Conner Chronicles' Lena Heady and Ben Chaplin) amongst the support.

A highly moving film.

 Perfect film

Perfect film dealing with the differences in class. Hopkins and Thompson play the role of servants to Fox as the Lord of themanor. An excellent story detailing the life of servants in the 1930s and beyond, but also an insight into the rise of war and the struggle against repressed emotions. A film about freedom and being trapped. An excellent supporting cast with Peter Vaughen, James Fox, Hugh Grant, ben Chaplin and Christopher Reeve to name but a few.
As perfect a film as it can get. a testament to lost glory

 Outstanding

This film is wonderful .
Great acting .
Great cast .
Great location settings .
The film is set around the goings on at Darlington hall .
A lavish and beautiful house set in the beauty that is the English countyside .
Hopkins and Thompson are the main characters in the film .
Their characters being Mr Stevens the butler of the house and Miss kenton the head House keeper .
James fox also heads the lists of famous names as he plays Lord Darlington .
Also in the cast is Hugh Grant and Ben Chaplin .
You might know Chaplin more from the Nineties BBC comedy Game on , Mathew .
Although he has been in a load of stuff as well .
And also in the cast is the late , much missed , man of steel him self , the one and only Superman .
Christopher reeve .
He might of been brought in to sell the film to the states .
But he blends in to the story wonderfully and reminds you of what a good actor he was .
I do not want to give away the plot line .
I will just say buy this film .
I'm a mid thirties guy who likes action films .
Die Hard , James Bond , gorey horror remakes .
Action film with gore and explosions it's not .
But i saw this film when it first came out in the pictures and i loved it .
I owned a copy of the Video and watched it about hundred times .
It just makes you watch it over and over .
I now own the Dvd .
Bye it .

 excellent performance

in my opinion one of the best Hopkins performances, if ever there was a film that captivates emotion this is the one, not a fast moving film but the acting and performances of all the cast far out weighs the lack of fast action.
truely a fantasic film for Hopkins fans , i will always remember how he portrayed his character making acting look simple .
