Reviews

THE PRICE OF LOVE is that rare thing: a powerful and picturesque narrative which resonates with ideas that link the past with the present. Set in a seemingly idyllic Corfu at the turn of the century, it follows the fortunes of a girl from a poor family who loves and is loved by a handsome son of the impoverished gentry. Only the size of her dowry stands between them, but as the story of betrayal and revenge unfolds dramatically, the whole structure of a society in the throes of change is laid bare. All are victims of a code of honour that exacts a terrible human price, even while it 's being undermined by the new factory economy. Tonia Marketaki has made only one feature before VIOLENT JOHN, (acclaimed in Berlin in 1974) and spent the years of the dictatorship in exile in Algeria. Her return to the Greek cinema marks one of its most exciting achievements in recent years.
