Assunto:  What about a "minimal amount of solace"
 
Mensagem:  What about "a very small quantity of solace"??


Yes, I've checked a dictionary and found that quantum means quantity, amount, but I always thought of "Quantum of solace" as a minimal amount of comfort, since a quantum is the smallest possible amount of energy (according to modern physics). I didn't watch the movie though.
