Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
director:
Mouly Surya
cast:
Marsha Timothy, Egy Fedly

In this fierce feminist western from Indonesian director Mouly Surya, recently widowed Marlina (Marsha Timothy) finds herself alone in her home with villainous stranger Markus (Egi Fedly) and his friends, a group of thieves and rapists. The decisions Marlina makes come to follow her in surprising ways as she sets off on a path toward redemption. The saga of Marlina’s quest for justice is a fantastical and furious revenge fantasy, gorgeously shot with wide, striking landscapes. Full of surprising stylistic crossovers, the music, by Zeke Khaseli and Ydhi Arfani, puts an Indonesian twist on the spirit of Ennio Morricone’s best western scores. “This film’s tightly executed, meticulously controlled surface barely contains the seething fury within.” (The Seattle Times)
