MARLINA THE MURDERER IN FOUR ACTS

Marlina is a grieving widow, living quietly in Sumba until a man named Markus and his gang tries to rob her house and she kills him. What ensues is a journey of revenge, suffused with anger but enlivened by a welcome strain of black humour. An enjoyable genre ride and a feminist arthouse story, the film is beautifully shot, from wide open deserts to closely framed interiors. The fantastic score reminds us we are in the shadow of Sergio Leone. Marsha Timothy’s committed lead performance is both chilling and cheering as she deals with the macho brutality of the male characters.
