  • Monolith rated this: 4.5 stars out of 5.

Very sad film of an English butler's admirable honor and dedication to his craft, through which with the passing of time ironically translates into bad choices. Sir Anthony realizes too late his misappropriated loyalty to his 'duty', and his devotion to values devoid of merit, shaping him into a rigid emotionless (but dignified!) robot... effectively resulting in romantic meaningful opportunities forever lost with the woman he loved but didn't have the social skills to approach. He and Emma Thompson are both magnificent; skillfully directed by James Ivory.

A really well made movie. Loved the story and anything with Anthony Hopkins makes it more special to watch. Very touching.

  • pokano rated this: 5 stars out of 5.

The Booker Award novel brought to film. Perfectly cast with Anthony Hopkins as the repressed by devoted butler and Emma Thompson as the housekeeper. A story of possibilities lost.

(Strolling through the backyard discussing a young housemaid) Miss Kenton: "Ah, very pretty girl, don't you think?" Mr. Stevens: "Mm-hmm." Miss Kenton (playfully): "Mm! You don't like, to have pretty girls on the staff though, noticed. ...Might it be that our Mr. Stevens... fears distraction? Can it be that our Mr. Stevens is flesh and blood after all, and cannot trust himself? Hmm?" Mr. Stevens: "You know what I am doing Miss Kenton? I am placing my thoughts elsewhere, while you chatter away."
