Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts (15)

Indonesia/2017/93mins/15 Dir: Mouly Surya Stars: Marsha Timothy, Egy Fedly, Dea Panendra, Yoga Pratama

Quietly living in Samba, grieving Marlina is saving money to bury her husband in the traditional manner when Markus and his gang knock on her door, intending to rob and assult her. With quiet determination Marlina poisons the men, a decision that changes her life. A tense, atmospheric and beautifully shot subversive Western from the director of What They Don’t Talk About When They Talk About Love.


"A revenge fantasy rooted in Indonesia’s gender conditions, complex regional culture and the stark beauty of its landscapes. At once tightly controlled and simmering with righteous fury, it’s gorgeously lensed, atmospherically scored and moves inexorably toward a gratifying payoff."
