Most Beautiful Island

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

For a movie that is eighty minutes long it takes forty minutes for anything suspenseful to happen. Then there is a long build up for ten minutes of entertainment.

Wow a lot of build for nothing even remotely special. It’s a shame because I was digging this till it absolutely went nowhere. Save your time and watch something with an actual pay off

Not your typical “horror” but certainly intriguing which by today’s standards is a home run. There should be more from this filmmaker.
