Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash
Edwin
Indonesia, Singapore, Germany 2021
114min
OV w/ EN subtitles

Imagine an action film where the main character is impotent. Not impotent in the face of this unfair world, the gods or destiny, but a character whose dick is literally limp. In a genre built around measuring manliness, this could put everything in danger. 
Ajo Kawir is a fighter, and so is his beloved Iteung. Both of them are moved by violence and also sustained by it, in the precarious economy that keeps them afloat. They meet in a dusty quarry when trying to kill each other and fall madly in love.
Set in the late 1980s, during the Suharto dictatorship, VENGEANCE IS MINE, ALL OTHERS PAY CASH continuously tries to locate the ways in which violence builds and is built into every part of life, a life that demands that one either be macho or die.
It is violence that makes men impoverished, makes them fight, and makes them die. Tension ensues when the narrative turns into a love story in which the possibility of building love together is what can set the couple free. A love that is open, outspoken, fearless. A love that belongs to a true action movie. (Lucía Salas)

In the presence of Meiske Taurisia (Producer) and Dave Lumenta (Music).
