An amnesia victim, Baldry doesn't remember anything about his life and vents his bitterness on his pretentious wife, Kitty (Julie Christie).

An exquisite screen version of Rebecca West's 1918 novel.

Audience Reviews for The Return of the Soldier

Beautifully detailed period drama about amnesia and lost love. Beautifully wrought performances by the four leads, one of Julie Christie's best performances with a moment of such luminous vulnerablity it takes your breath away and breaks your heart at the same time.
