Slovenski opis filma:

Angleški film, 1963 Režija: Joseph Losey Scenarij: Harold Pinter, Robin Maugham Igrajo: Dirk Bogarde, Sarah Miles, Wendy Craig Psihološka drama Josepha Loseyja temelji na starem modelu zgodbe o neravnovesju moči v odnosu gospodarja in hlapca. Čeprav je zlate dobe aristokracije že davno konec, se zdolgočaseni in razvajeni mladenič Tony, ki živi v vili iz 18. stoletja, odloči za najem osebnega služabnika Huga Barretta. Najprej se Barrett zlije s Tonyjevo predstavo stare družbene hierarhije in nastopa kot popoln sluga, podložen in vljuden. Ravnovesje med gospodarjem in slugo se ruši zlagoma, a brez zavor. Najprej začne Susan, Tonyjevo dekle, izražati prezir do Barretta in ga obravnavati kot seme zla v gospodinjstvu. Med dekletom in slugo se vname boj, ki je sprva komaj opazen, a se spremeni v sovraštvo. Psihološki boj se pospešeno stopnjuje, ko Tony izgubi glavo zaradi sobarice Vere, ki jo Barrett predstavlja kot svojo sestro, čeprav je v resnici njegova partnerka. Barrett naposled dobi popolno premoč nad Tonyjem in Susan vrže iz hiše. Gospodar postane sluga, sluga gospodar.

After traveling with Susan and spending a couple of days in a friend's house outside London, the couple unexpectedly returns and finds Barrett and Vera, who are actually lovers, in Tony's room.
