It’s not every day that one happens upon a feminist Indonesian Spaghetti Western, especially one that brazenly blares out the mariachi horns from the get-go. Even against a backdrop of rape-revenge, motherhood dominates fourth film from Mouly Surya. Marlina has lost a son, her chatty chum Novi (Dea Panendra) is nearly 10 months pregnant, and even one of the evil thugs takes time to sing the praises of his late mummy’s culinary skills. Marlina lives quietly in Sumba until one day a man named Markus and his gang tries to rob her house and she kills him. Eventually, she is haunted by Markus, and her life turns in 180.
