Ababa is a taxi driver in Ethiopia. One day, he helps a woman, a prostitute who tries to get away from the man who constantly bothers her. However, Ababa’s kind gesture puts him into troubles: his taxi gets stolen. In order to find his taxi back, he roams around the city. Police is not very helpful. In a neo-realistic style, Price of Love follows a journey to find a car, not a bicycle, to depict the unfortunate reality of Ethiopia and to question the society’s ethics and its choices. Hermon Hailay has received much attention from many film festivals as an emerging female director from Africa with her film Price of Love. By showing the growing pressure of the capitalistic society and people who live under such pressure, Price of Love poses questions on disappearing values of humanity. The simple realism of the film will touch viewers’ heart. (LEE Sang-yong)
