Νύφες [Brides] (2004)
–Love is for the loiterers, Eleni. But I miss it.
Samothrace, Smyrna, Odessa. War, natural disasters, and poverty bring unfortunes, among them far too many unmarried women. This forces arranged marriages with »mail order brides« who have never even met their grooms. But real love strikes unexpected, of course.
– We’re just women.
Slow, sad, solemn drama of class, truth, and respect. Interesting and very well made, but probably a little too cautious for my book of bitter-sweet aftertastes.
– We end here.
