Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

Sunday 4th November 5:00 PM


If you can picture Sergio Leone directing a feminist western in Indonesia you are on the way to seeing what Mouly Surya has succeeded in doing here: after being told she is going to be robbed and raped in half an hour, Marlina prepares for the 'Robbery', then goes on her 'Journey' for revenge; you will have to come and see the movie to find out what the other two acts are...


“The story is essentially a revenge fantasy like many another, but its feminist slant never feels rhetorical or heavy-handed. The whole thing is handled with sly wit as well as unfailing stylistic smarts, which makes for a very satisfying package”
