Put it on and realised I had seen it before ages ago. It was still so watchable, and exciting, and kept you thinking right to the end. Birlliant work with brilliant actors all the way through. Get this, don't miss it, it is such a good thrilling watch. Thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I could remember bits of it from seeing it before, it still kept my interest.

'Restless', is a new two part film, I found on Acorn TV. If you have a chance to view it, grab it. This is an adaptation of William Boyd's novel. 'Restless' is a real spy film and will keep you on tenterhooks until the last scene. Remarkable storyline and superb acting

Part one introduces the main characters in flashback from 1970 to 1939. The main protagonist is spy, Sally Gilmartin, played by Charlotte Rampling. The beautiful, Hayley Atwell, plays Sally in her younger days,using her real name, Eva Delectorskaya. Michelle Dockery, plays Sally's daughter, Ruth Gilmartin. Ruth, a single mother, teaches while she is obtaining her PhD. Rufus Sewell is the young spy provocateur, Lucas Romer, and Michael Gambon plays him as the older man.

Sally Gilmartin lives alone in an isolated village in England. She has past retirement, her husband has died, her daughter is at Cambridge obtaining her PhD, and she is sure someone is planning to kill her. When her daughter. Ruth, and grandson come to visit, she starts to tell Ruth her story and gives her the written story of her life. Pally wants help in drawing out Lucas Romer, the only man who can save her. Via flashbacks we see Sally or Eva as she is known, as her life as a spy for England. The cloaks and daggers are out, and Eva proves to be excellent at her job. We meet her colleagues and the bigwigs in the outfit. We go with Eva on her trips and assignments. She and Lucas become lovers. When Eva us sent to Mexico on an assignment things go very wrong, and she goes undercover. The story continues, and you get to see the inner workings of the spy game. The spy game is not a game,and people are killed and maimed,but this film shows us exactly how I imagined the spy game would be played. Superb!

Highly Recommended. prisrob 09-13-15

Great story ! I had a little trouble with the dialogue and background sound overriding the voices; however, all in all, it was a fabulously entertaining story ! I am still not sure about the ending, but believe that the double cross/double agent scenario did not become apparent until the very end (I hope that I haven't given too much away). The acting was brilliant, the period settings historically accurate, and the background and historical portrayals were wonderful in the social context of the times. The story is in two parts so required two evenings of viewing. Because of the intensity of the plot, two evenings would be more appropriate. It was well written, well acted, and spectacularly produced and directed.

I really did like this film when it came out and hoped it would come out on DVD.

It has a good plot, well placed, plenty of twists and turns. It is not perfect but it is very enjoyable

"Restless" is a top quality film, in my opinion. Only three stars, however, because the DVD has no subtitles. I knew this when I purchased it, so I downloaded them from the Internet. My question is: sInce the subtitles are available, why the producers don't include them into the DVD?

An imitation of an imitation of an imitation. High-end upscale drivel. Best things were the Persian carpets and interiors. Most of the actors were superb, as expected, but so many careless omissions and fallacies (one minute she throws her handbag -- full of false passports, money, etc. while running for her life, and next minute it's safe in her hands) and generally untruthful/unconvincing behavior left me underwhelmed and disappointed.

RESTLESS, the television adaptation of William Boyd's novel of the same name, was shown on UK BBC One and US Sundance Channel television in two parts in December 2012. The teleplay was nominated for two Primetime Emmy awards the following spring. Part one, the story of Eva's early life as a spy in the days leading to World War II, is beautifully filmed on spectacular locations in Europe. The cars used in the production are European vintage in beautiful condition. The costumes are interesting and appear authentic. The cast is superlative:

Sally Gilmartin...Charlotte Rampling ("Swimming Pool")
Eva Delectorskaya...Hayley Atwell ("Any Human Heart")
Ruth Gilmartin....Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey")
Lucas Romer....Rufus Sewell ("Zen")(Part 1)....Michael Gambon ("Dancing at Lughnasa")(Part 2)

The story begins in 1976 in a remote part of England when Ruth (a long red-haired hippie working on her doctorate) and her son visit her mother Sally Gilmartin. Ruth finds her mother in great fear thinking someone is in the woods behind the house trying to kill her. Sally has purchased a rifle, binoculars, and a telescope. She tells her daughter she was a Russian girl named Eva that was a spy for the British in a clandestine group that offered refuge for German informants and recruited Roosevelt's help for British causes in WW II. Sally implores Ruth to find and visit Lucas Romer, the only one she trusts in the group, to stop the present-day killers; she gives her daughter her journal of her days as a spy.

Eva's journal begins in 1939 German-occupied France when she is recruited by spymaster Lucas Romer after her brother is killed by Nazis. She is trained at a safe house in a remote part of England.
