Love, money and betrayal in Corfu at the turn of the century. Based on the novel "Honour and Money" by Constantinos Theotokis, Tonia Marketaki makes a historical and social comment on the particular period and place, which are depicted faithfully and with a forcefull imagery. An impoverished member of the gentry and a girl of humble origins fall in love, but the girl's poor dowry prevents their marrying, while the heroes themselves face difficulties even after the end of their relationship. In the closed island society, there is no place for an unmarried mother, nevertheless, the young woman maintains the integrity of her feelings, her character and her morale in spite of the prejudices and financial difficulties. From a tale of love, betrayal and awakening, there gradually emerges the portrayal of a world that is in a state of continuous change. "The Price of Love" won the Grand Prix "Golden Olive" at the Mediterranean Film Festival, Bastia.
