  • dionysus67's rating of the film The Price of Love

    One of the most acclaimed Greek films, deservedly so. Marketaki directs with flair and authenticity a period drama, blending intelligently a political discourse about monetary values with patriarchy, the latter caught in the transition to modernity. Acted with committment, mostly by the superb female leads, this is a sensitive dissection of women's plight leading to a feminist -yet painful- resolution. Absorbing!
