Beautiful, heartbreaking book of understatement and about the price for following convention amd one's sense of duty over the desires (expressed or not) of one's heart. I have not seen the movie yet, but I have heard it captured the subdued tone and deeper philosophical questions posed by Isihiguro's choices in narration and subjects.

Renata The movie is brilliant and beautifully captured the the book - I think of it like a painting, a Rembrandt one can contemplate for hours.

WarpDrive You must see the movie - it is as beautiful as the book.
