"If you only see one feminist Indonesian Spaghetti Western this year, this should be it" The Irish Times

A provocative and smouldering revenge story, Mouly Surya's contemporary reworking of the spaghetti western is deeply rooted in the cultural and geopolitical landscapes of Indonesia.

Marlina (an incredible Masha Timothy) is a widow living in a remote farmhouse alongside the embalmed corpse of her husband. When robbers arrive wearing generations of entitlement on their backs, demanding a hospitable meal before they rob her of her money livestock, possessions and more, Marlina is more than prepared with the wit to take them on.

A story filled with strength and repossessed power, Marlina the Murderer will, in four acts, shock, surprise and satisfy. With pioneering performances from its outstanding female cast, stunning vistas and an atmospheric score, Surya's take on the male-dominated genre of the likes of Quentin Tarantino beats them at their own game.
