Excellent confrontation of principles.
4 November 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Very good movie. The theme is clearly stated with a sensitive conduction towards the core of the issue.

The dialogs are succinct and to the point. The "principle" of the title is very cleverly exposed, creating a dichotomy between the urge to sell an old and very valuable magazine to buy things with the money from the sale --things considered of utmost priority to some of the people involved in the story-- and the reluctance of its owner to sell it because his father is in it, in a picture next to an aristocrat of that time (in reality his father is so far away from the royal character, lost among a sea of people, that only a loving son could point at a ghost of a picture and identify it as his father).

But the core of this very well narrated story is this: Should one let go of an object with a great emotional value for a sum of money?

Very entertaining movie with several twists as the action develops.

The actors, excellent, all of them; the director, with an ease and light touch that gives this picture a sort of french cinema feeling.

Superb.

The photography, the sound and the lighting, impeccable.

The conclusion of this confrontation could very well serve for a debate after a screening of this movie for a discussion about ethical values in a constantly changing world.
