Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

Marlina si Pembunuh dalam Empat Babak

Gateway | Dragons & Tigers

Marlina (Marsha Timothy), a recently bereaved widow, is set upon by a group of men with rape on their minds—but she sure knows how to fight back. Emerging from the encounter with a severed head in her possession, our heroine sets off on a mission to seek legal justice. In her dealings with the police she’ll face indifference and incompetence, and there are other obstacles thrown in her path. But she’s a dedicated woman, and, in addition to the head, she’s packing a machete…

Mouly Surya’s film has been likened to a Western, and in its portrayal of Marlina’s trek across the land it does recall some classics of the genre. But ultimately it stands on its own, a proudly feminist work and a slam-bang revenge drama. The violence is harsh, the settings are beautiful and the narrative is utterly gripping. In her lead character, Surya has created a figure so striking, so proud, that it’s a thrill to identify with her.

"Kicks ass… At once an enjoyable genre ride and a feminist art-house story. Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts might send some heads rolling but has its own head firmly on its shoulders."—Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
