" The antique : secret of the old books " was interesting.

The combination of the past stories with the contemporary mystery was good and it wasn't tiring as it went back and forth. The past romance was pretty intense and the love story was sweet and entertaining. However, the present little love story was not necessary and disappointing. The whole mystery with the book was a let down too, as the actual reason behind the crime was not well explained.

On the other hand, the cinematography was very artistic and the book theme was well presented. The performances were really good from everyone in the cast.

So, overall, five out of ten.
