Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.30.13] Greece thriller drama

Most of the Greek films that have been making the festival rounds the last few years have been mostly mute on the financial and political crisis in Greece but director Thanos Anastopoulos' new feature The Daughter (I Kori) is very different from its counterparts in that it not only makes mention of the crisis but uses it as a central part of the story.

The Daughter is part political commentary and part thriller, the story of a teenage girl who kidnaps the son of the man she blames for her family's bankruptcy. What I find interesting is that we have a very young woman taking matters into her own hands and a mild suggestion that perhaps the man she blames for her family's trouble isn't solely responsible.

It's a small, timely story of how one individual deals with the fallout of the crisis.
