I actually found it pretty hard to breathe at the end of this film. How did they manage to do this? The subtlety and layering of emotion in the actors faces, their body language as they walk around a room -all creating far more tension than any hollywood thriller.
Hats off to Kazuo Ishiguro for coming up with one of the best char's ive seen in recent memory, for the Merchant/Ivory team (+ howard Pinter) & DP Tony Pierce-Roberts for the flawless execution
The shot of the hands slipping apart at the end destroyed me
