  1. I really enjoyed the movie, it is quite intelligible and the man’s voice is a very pleasant one. I founded new information that means I didn’t spent time in vain. I will never stop being surprised by one’s intelligence, it is amazing how a human can invent such great “stuff”, or I don’t even know how could a huge, complex system which serves people thousand years, be called. It is also amazing how people can do money from nothing and after that being dissatisfied by its “scanty” amounts. The movie is a good one, it can be shown both to a person who knows nothing about the banking system and a person acquainted with that, it will be interesting anyway.
