Storyline

This is a story about Mr. Cohen, a father who owns a large department store in London and cares about being a good shopkeeper and good person. Mr. Cohen's elder son and a friend's son work there and have slowly taken on more and more responsibility with the inadvertent result that Mr Cohen has begun to feel unimportant. Mr. Cohen longs to start over with a small shop to regain what he feels he has lost. One subplot involves Mr. Cohen's attempts to remain relevant by helping a small shopkeeper both before and after a major life event for the family. Another subplot involves his younger son's marriage decision and Mr. Cohen's involvement. Mr. Cohen ultimately takes a trip for distraction and looks at buying a small shop. Just in time to save the day, he realizes that he is needed at home after all. Written by Anonymous

Life as it used to be, perhaps
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting to see in 2006, a picture about the morals and business ethics that probably existed 70 years ago. Considering the passage of time, I was surprised to find so many of the conflicts of today, were, prevalent so many years ago. Religious differences, business ethics, management vs labor, and the like all come together in this rather simplistic film without the benefit (sic) of the next 70 years of social change. And the differences and problems somehow get solved.

Boy meets girl. Father disapproves not specifically stated for religious differences. Father not happy with son's trying to modernize business through advertising and the fact that a strike is called in spite of having a previous agreement. Father takes a walk, and the story continues with him on the outside. He finally returns to make the situation whole again and the marriage takes place under the supervision of a Priest and and Rabbi, the strike is called off and all's well that ends well.

I liked it. It was fun. It was (in terms of today) a comment on the changing times...and I am 75 years old.
