Storyline

The wife of an alcoholic and mother of four (Toula Stathopoulou) is a factory worker in Corfu at the beginning of the 20th century. A fallen noble man who has fallen on hard times (Stratis Tsopanellis) wants to marry her eldest daughter (Anny Loulou) and take advantage of the family's meager earnings. He kidnaps the not-unwilling girl, and argues with her mother about the dowry. But the girl refuses to marry him when she wakes up to the fact that he is only looking out for his own interests. She then decides to start working in order to earn money to raise the child she is expecting. The film is an adaptation of the novel 'For Honor and Money' by Konstantinos Theotokis.

Respect for women
9 April 2017 | by deickosSee all my reviews

Though the story may seem old-fashioned, the ending is not. The lesson is as old as the world - respect for women. The final decision the woman has to make is a brave and a classic one. She loves because she respects herself, she leaves her family for the same reason, she too eventually discards her would-be-husband for the same reason again. This is a great moral story and it is interesting how such a strong story makes up for any other weakness of the film.
