Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale? Written by

The meaning of the film's title according to different sources. The Governor character in the Ian Fleming
short story of the same name defines it as "a precise figure defining the comfort, humanity, and fellow feeling required between two people for love to survive. If the quantum of solace is 0, then love is dead." He then introduces the Law of the Quantum of Solace as follows: "I've seen flagrant infidelities patched up, I've seen crimes, and even murder foreign by the other party, let alone bankruptcy, and other forms of social crime. Incurable disease, blindness, disaster, all of these can be overcome. But never the death of common humanity in one of the partners. I've thought about this, and I've invented a rather high-sounding title for this basic factor in human relations. I have called it the law of the Quantum of Solace." In the same story, James Bond comments on the Law of the Quantum of Solace as follows: "That's a splendid name for it. It's certainly impressive enough, and of course I see what you mean. I should say you're absolutely right. Quantum of Solace, the amount of comfort. Yes, I suppose you can say that all love and friendship is based in the end on that. Human beings are very insecure. When the other person not only makes you feel insecure, but actually seems to want to destroy you, it's obviously the end. The Quantum of Solace stands at zero. You've got to get away to save yourself." In an interview, the producers explained: "It means that a relationship cannot be salvaged unless there is a 'quantum of solace' between the two parties, 'Quantum' meaning 'measure', and 'solace' meaning 'comfort', so if they are not willing to share that, then their relationship is not redeemable. In our case, it is a couple of things: Bond is looking for a 'quantum of solace' after his experiences in Casino Royale
(2006), and QUANTUM also happens to be the name of the villainous organization in the film." See more
In the opening chase, Bond's car and the villain's cars are black. In the quarry, right after the police's car is falling and crosses the track, we briefly see two white cars (or so covered in dust that they are uniformly white). A second after, they are black again (or with much less dust). See more
