A Matter of Dignity (Greek: Το τελευταίο ψέμα, translit. To teleftaio psema) is a 1958 Greek drama film directed by Michael Cacoyannis. It was entered into the 1958 Cannes Film Festival.[1]


The Pellas are magnates who face financial ruin. Desperate to conceal the dire straits they are in and maintain their social status, they plan to marry their beautiful daughter Chloe off to a wealthy, dull middle-aged man. Caught between caring for her family and her doomed love for her young but poor boyfriend, Chloe flees to her retired nanny.
