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
I just saw this movie on TCM. What an uplifting fabulous movie that shows us that each individual is of immense worth. Mr. Cohen thought that he was too old to be of use to any one so he went on the road. Along the way he befriends many people and even adopts a dog. He finds a way to slip money to people anonymously, people who are good but are in need of help. He runs out of money just as he finds out that his son needs his help to avert a strike at their department store. He must depend upon the help of a stranger to get back to London before the workers leave (Just as the sale of the year is beginning.) He gets a ride with a farmer and arrives in time to save the day. I give this film a ten because everyone needs to be reminded that the little things we do in life can affect everyone around us and give meaning to our lives. Also what goes around comes around.
