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
huge build up to basically nothing. very anti climatic. felt like it ended too soon.
I mean it’s a sow burn but it’s gripping, I enjoyed it.
Thanks to those leaving spoilers in reviews I’ll note watch this one. Bad form!
I liked it, great suspense and a decent ending. What more does a movie need to take your mind of things..?
