Rape-revenge, motherhood and ravishing beauty soak this stunning Indonesian neo-spaghetti western.


After surviving a horrifying attack on her arid, isolated farmstead from a group of brutish locals (and making short, bloody work of them in the process), recently widowed Marlina sets out on a quest for justice and retribution, turning modern Indonesia into a sprawling Wild East, where people are more likely to carry a sabre than a cell phone.


As billed in the title, Marlina’s adventures unfold over four acts; The Robbery, The Journey, The Confession, and The Birth, each blending bursts of violence and deadpan humour into a stylishly stark tale of revenge and redemption.


Aided by an atmospheric, Morricone-esque score by Zeke Khaseli and Yudhi Arfani, director Mouly Surya smartly weaves well-worn western clichés with pressing current social issues, highlighting and challenging her country’s shocking women’s rights record. Amongst a furious feminist exposé of macho brutality, the real subject here is patriarchy, and how the lowliest men still expect to get whatever they want from even the strongest women.
