The Remains of the day speaks to a problem in contemporary society that is true of England, the land where articulation standards seem the most perfect and are certainly supreme in my own view in fact, compared to any other so far developed alternatives (if to see such options would have any desirability in any event, it escapes me for the present moment as to what that might be). The problem in the picture nonetheless is a serious one, its that of human relating in an adequate manner so as to preserve valid emotions and in fact a wellness in the form of being that yield the real best quality of life. 

My own political crusade in the area has been an outreach to see that the values prevalent in related societies in the region especially those of Germany, France, Italy and Spain, all in particular might yield a better formula for a better outcome in future endeavors to bring such people into societies where English is adopted for all its supreme benefits without losing sight of what remains fundamentally non-dispensable in making the transition meaningful, worthwhile, desirable and in the end certainly fruitful.

There can never be an equivalent to the contribution that the British
have made to the world in the area of decorum and the trappings of
civilized discourse. We are to never lose these benefits or anarchy is
the certain result. that said, we must retain our full functioning as we
come to learn what benefits there are to be gained, in a manner as to
stay within our own sense of what is again, most meaningful 
personally, each to his own, that come from such related
cultures (closely) as I make reference to here, and for whom the
producers have provided audio support on the Euro version of the
DVD and Blu-ray discs.

Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins remain in my own mind
"the most popular of visible British icons on stage" in what they are
and in this respect it is no surprise that it is them that tell the story here.

This movie looking at the relationship between working class members of Aristocratic households in this case - just as in the 1971-1975 great Series from the UK "Upstairs Downstairs" with Sir David Langton playing Lord Bellamy while Sir Edward Fox plays Lord Darlington here.

What we find is that men as portrayed by such great men as these do have obvious merit of spirit and intelligence and core idealism that would see them reign over others in the natural order of things in what has been the case historically where such ideas of merit (in times now seeming gone by) up untill now.

Needless to say, the depiction of the lack of human sanity (relatively speaking) in the sort of oppression of spirit some would practice under the guise of "keeping the servants honest" by not allowing them ny idea they would be allowed notions of a possibility of love to enter into their lives once they had "entered into service". Such notions do not come from the best mindsets or those who show real sanity or goodness at the core in any such situations but from misfits in their midst instead - even those seemingly related to some degree in their own regards. As such I think we mis-script the best of men here to seem as though they would have such a mind on such matters in reality.  Nor should Sir Edward Fox be given any notions that he is at the level of the low level functionaries of an condescending nature to his real goodness and intelligence who are dispatched in this story from Germany to "case the joint" for possibly raiding the mansion in the future to take what "paintings hang on the walls' - an expression likewise bandied about in the great movie "White Mischief" (1987) starring dear Ms. Greta Scacchi of which we do now have a 1080p version prepared to upload to you quite soon I expect and pray.

Also included is a commentary track we lifted from an HDTV video featuring Ms. Emma Thompson and as well a man from India I believe who is in fact given the role of "director" it would appear over this great work of cultural offerings from the British isles. Now isnt that an honour indeed. I should just add in this note that in the Documentary from Pakistan we recently posted labeled "Among the believers" a member of the academia of the University there is seen to preach to a "Mullah" (who is seeking to ban "music" etc as sinful an enjoyment to partake of without state orchestrated restraints of a mind so oriented) that the purpose of life is ultimately to find true love and share in it with mutual commitment and merit as being all there is of real value in our existence on the planet. I'm with him in such thoughts and certainly against the hateful preachings of the mullah mindset there too as is labelled by the Academic scholar in calling it like it is for crissakes here.

Thanks for seeding this one for a change folks - we could do better Im sure its a great tale when looked at in this light.
