Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
Directed by Mouly Surya • Drama • With Marsha Timothy • 2017 • 93 minutes
In the deserted hills of an Indonesian island, Marlina (Marsha Timothy), a young widow, is attacked and robbed of all her livestock by a gang of seven bandits. She then defends herself, setting out on a journey to find justice, empowerment, retribution and redemption. But the road is long, especially when she begins to be haunted by the ghost of her victim. A stunning western set to a Morricone-inspired score, this unique tale of female cinematic revenge takes no prisoners.
"AN UNWAVERING SLOW BURN... Ms. Surya gives Marlina a stark, steady, captivating look that keeps you engaged." —Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
