Subtitling reviews:

Submitted by circev on 21st February 2006:
Well subtitled"film is HOH subtitled. All the extras are HOH subtitled which is great for a somewhat arthouse British film [documentaries 'on location', 'introduction', 'from play to film' and 2 short biographies in text form]."

Film information

Based on: The play by Harold Pinter

Story: Clive Donner's film version of Harold Pinter's groundbreaking play. For reasons unclear, Aston (Robert Shaw) invites a tramp named Davies (Donald Pleasence) to come and work as the caretaker in his run-down East London home. Davies initially talks of retrieving some documents that will establish his credentials, but then puts more and more obstacles in the way of returning to Sidcup to fetch them. Aston meanwhile talks of assembling a shed in the garden, a project whose exact start-point seems to be a matter of some deferral. Aston's spivvish brother Mick, owner of house, returns to find the fine balance between the siblings upset as the brothers' relationship begins to revolve in new ways around the tramp. Includes an introduction from Michael Billington and two making-of features.

Starring: Donald Pleasence, Alan Bates, Robert Shaw
