Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
The countryside on the Indonesian island Sumba is an inhospitable place – particularly for women. Marlina finds this out painfully when a gang of robbers breaks into her home demanding her virtue, and her livestock. Recovering from the initial shock, she decides not to give in without a fight.
The bare landscape is the perfect setting for this revenge Western, with a laconic yet determined Marlina in the lead role. The people she meets on her path to justice accept her mission as a matter of course, along with the fact that she carries the head of one of her tormentors around with her.
