Reposting an old work.
Marlina is a grieving woman, hard at work all year long to save enough money for the traditional Sumba burial of her late husband; who now sits as a mummy in the living room.
Markus knocks on her door and informs her that his gang intends to rob her in half an hour; a promise well kept.
Marlina poisons the robbers and seduces Markus. During sex, she beheads him and starts a journey with Markus' bloodied head inside a plastic bag. When the next house in West Sumba is ten to twenty kilometers away, the journey is more metaphorical than real. Marlina fights from kitchen to bedroom to bus, encounters a musical opus and the birth of a child.
The film got selected in many International Film festivals, including Cannes film festival, New Zealand international film festival, Toronto International film festival (TIFF), festival film Tempo 2017, etc.
Directed by Mouly Surya @moulysurya, acted brilliantly by Marsha Timothy @marshatimothy as Marlina and Dea Panendra @deapanendra as Novi alongside with the most brilliant supporting actors.
