Storyline

In the later years of the nineteenth century Latin master Mr. Chipping is the mainstay of Brookfields boys boarding school, a good teacher and a kindly person but he is considered to be married to the job so that it is a surprise when, on a walking holiday, he meets and marries the vivacious Kathie,who becomes his helpmate at the school but sadly pre-deceases him. Just before World War One insensitive new headmaster Ralston tries to edge Chipping out but the boys rally and Sir John Rivers, an old pupil of Chipping's and now head of the board of governors, invites him to stay and,when the war breaks out and Ralston joins up, Chipping becomes the new head. He is saddened by the waste of young lives in the pointless war and also by the death of his old friend and former German teacher Max, who had returned to his homeland to fight for Germany and he reminds the assembled boys that an individual's goodness is more important than their nationality. It is a sad day for all concerned when ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Utterly amazing - loved it!
20 June 2005 | by hanibullecter_See all my reviews

I would love to give this film 10/10, it was so totally amazing! The best version I've ever seen, let down only by the fact that it made me cry! Martin Clunes gives a fabulous performance, one of his best ever. From start to finish I couldn't tear my eyes from the screen. I can't wait to watch it again, can't recommend it highly enough! As I said, the only thing that lets the film down in my opinion is that its a tear-jerker. It's never a bad thing that a film can rise such strong emotions of joy, sadness or relief in you, but I hate it when I cry in films because I just feel so uncontrolled! If you don't love this film, I have to say I am utterly baffled. No scene is not compelling, no plot-line is not fascinating. All in all, if you don't like the film I really have to ask why!
