Most Beautiful Island
Directed by Ana Asensio
MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND is a psychological thriller set in the world of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York City. Shot on Super 16mm with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.
An undocumented woman struggling in NYC is offered an opportunity she can’t refuse, but soon discovers she’s involved in a dangerous game.
Cast: Ana Asensio, Natasha Romanova, Nicholas Tucci, Larry Fassenden, Caprice Benedetti
Definitely worth a watch....it shows the struggles of trying to get a foothold in a new land!
If I am to be honest. This movie was quite boring until the very end.
Slow, visually interesting movie. As mentioned in other reviews, doesn't really have a climax or conclusion, as stated in the description, is more of a day in the life of type movie. Not sure I'd classify as horror, but does contain horrific elements.
What an awesome thriller! This movie was a wonderful surprise. Great story, very unnerving and what an ending. Great movie! A+
so much lost potential but still a beautifully put together film. i truly enjoyed it though it was lacking a climax to fullfil the build up.
