The Confidential Agent

Серия: "-"

In a small continental country civil war is raging. Once a lecturer in medieval French, now a confidential agent, D is a scarred stranger in a seemingly casual England, sent on a mission to buy coal at any price. Initially, this seems to be a matter of straightforward negotiation, but soon, implicated in murder, accused of possessing false documents and theft, held responsible for the death of a young woman, D becomes a hunted man, tormented by allegiances, doubts and the love of others.

Graham Greene

Adversidad
La desgracia, como la piedad, suele terminar haciéndose hábito.
Edad
En el fondo de nosotros mismos siempre tenemos la misma edad.
Poder
No puede uno confiarse a sus superiores cuando ha triunfado donde ellos fracasaron.
Triunfo
No puede uno confiarse a sus superiores cuando ha triunfado donde ellos fracasaron.
