Product Description

Product Description

There will be days and days and days like this...

Meryl Streep delivers one of her greatest performances in David Hare's adaptation of his own stage play, which spans two decades in the life of a French Resistance operative who struggles to build a new life amid the apathy of post-war England. Featuring a stellar supporting cast and winning a brace of awards and nominations in 1985, this masterly feature is presented here in a brand-new high definition transfer from the original film elements.

At the end of World War Two, Susan Traherne, a young Englishwoman who has worked as a courier in Nazi-occupied France, returns home full of hope for a golden future. Yet peacetime brings its own difficulties for Susan; she finds her marriage to a Foreign Office diplomat arid and unfulfilling, and the seemingly trivial concerns of others leave her cold. As the danger and intensity and undeniable excitement of her wartime days give way to a new, mundane life, her fragile mental and emotional stability begins to crumble...

I first saw this film when I was about 17, I remember it but I'm not sure why I would have liked it. But 20 years later I can see its real beauty.

It's about hopes and aspirations. The intensity of youth that tails off, becoming frustration and boredom. This is one of those classic English films, depicting a class and its cruelties. The problem of living for yourself or making sacrifices for others. Meryl Streep is beautiful: poised, elegant, brittle, mad. I'd forgotten what a genius John Gielgud was - his comedy turns are so polished.

Charles Dance as the emotionally limited Englishman is very good. Tracey Ullman and Sting play bit parts very well.

I've watched it twice on DVD and seen more equisite details each time. And the music is haunting and fabulous, too.

In some ways you have to feel sorry for Miss Streep. Despite giving yet another superb performance here, for me, "Plenty" never got the recognition it really deserved. Along with "Bridges of Madison County", another of Meryl's seemingly over-looked works, this remains one of my favorite Streep movies.
I, like the previous posting first saw this movie over twenty years ago, and for me it has lost none of its appeal. Its both beautiful and tragic, as we see Streep journey from a young hopeful resistance fighter in wartime France, to diplomats wife in post-war England, and her gradual distain of the mediocraty of her middle class life.
The movie also throws up a few unconventional names, Tracy Ullman and Sting to name but two, Ullman is particularly impressive as Streeps free and easy side-kick and adds some comic lift to the film.
This is one of those movies that i wish had had a CD of the soundtrack released. The music to this film is beautiful, haunting and poignant.
You will either "get" this film or you wont, for me the final (retrospective) scene with Streep stood on a sun-bathed French hillside looking out across the valley and talking of her dreams of the life yet to come is a masterstroke and is key to the whole movie. Its my favorite bit of the whole film.
We all know how good an actress Meryl is (the best in the world perhaps?), and this particular role must have been difficult to carry off, but i think she should be very proud of this movie which for me at any rate, remains an under-rated Streep beaut!

Brilliantly created, finely scripted, beautifully acted by a who's who of British (and American) character actors, amazing to look at, a perfect gem of a movie... yet strangely unsatisfying. Or should that read 'dissatisfying'?

Much as I admire David Hare for his skilfull stage masterpieces, I can't help feeling that he's created here a confection consisting of a series of ornate historical set pieces, rather like a Christmas present wrapped with layers of brightly-coloured paper and ribbon, at the heart of which is a rather sour plum. Ultimately, it's a cynical and sour-hearted film, giving Meryl Streep the opportunity to act her cotton socks off and in the process go totally off the rails in some style, but strangely incoherent too.

The narrative gave little opportunity for the audience to feel sympathetically about any character, only to allow the post-war nostalgia to wash over you like a wet sponge. Don't expect to come out feeling any sense of euphoria, though. Hare drains any positive feeling like a barrowload of leeches. Watch - but enjoyment is at a premium.

Plenty, is the sad and terribly unconvincing story of English woman Susan Traherne's life during and after WWII. Entirely crafted by Fred Schepisi, from a play by David Hare, Plenty portrays Susan's life, from the dangers and excitements of Resistance fighter in France to the twenty or so following years of boredom, disillusion and bourgeois existence. Determined to change the world, Susan returns to England, only to face a vacuous society, far more concerned by coping with reality than to change it. Susan is supposed to have lived such an intense and meningful life (dangers, excitements, passionate love and worth-to-die-for feelings and gestures) during her Resistance years in France, that she has become unfit to reality. All very good, at least if you want to buy it. True, Meryl Streep is an excellent actress and she can twist your heart with one simple blink of the eye. She is a true professional, but that may very well be the problem. Let me explain. Susan is supposed to be (or have been anyway) a passionate and warm woman, with a thing for danger - One of her less convincing lines at the end of the movie, when she says "I have a weakness, I like to lose control". She will have us believe that she speaks French (she says to the man who will later become her lover "Your French is not very good", but hey, neither is hers) and that she really cares for others' problems and needs. From that point on, Schepisi and Streep do try their best to portray Susan's struggle, as she tries to cope with the emptiness of her new life in post-war Britain. The problem is that Streep's character is spoiled, selfish and self-indulging to put it nicely.Read more ›
