A totally obscure (for me that is and probably for others too) 1980's
gem from Argentina. A very entertaining B-ish Female Revenge
Home Invasion Crime Thriller. Great Fun and i really enjoyed this one,
violent, nasty and sleazy, the 1980's trashy movies rocked.
The Meaning of Life - to find obscure
1980's crime action horror slashers you have never heard about ?
A gang of criminals attacks and home invades the villa
of a middle-aged couple with a son and a daughter and takes them as
The gangsters gig was to put a false ad in the paper with Mr. Beltran
selling his Mercedes, and then to rob all eager potential buyers
arriving to the villa with cash in their pockets.
The leader of the gang (Rodolfo Ranni) has a gang of thugs with him
and they soon starts to harass the females, raping Ms. Beltran
and killing Mr. Beltran. A trauma that puts the son in an institution
in a coma, and with the daughter, Patrizia (Andrea
living for one thing, to find the perpetrators and to extract revenge.
Patrizia is out partying and meets an older lesbian
or bi-sexual lady, Monica (Luisina Brando) and when she sees the male
Monica, she recognizes him as the leader of the gangster gang that attacked
her family. Pat wants to know who the man is and she
starts to hang out with Monica, who runs a massage parlour and Bordello
owned by that man. Pat starts working there as a
waitress and soon another one in the gang turns up, the giggling idiot,
the brother of the gang leader (Emilio Disi).
Pat seduces him and kills him, but the boss and his
underling Ringo (Jorge Sissi) knows who she is by now and we're in for
great fun ending. Aaaah ... this one is much better than most of all
the high-brow arty argentinian thrillers i've seen on Netflix.
They knew how to make them in the 1980's and Female Revenge on film
is the sweetest revenge.
The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen with
an english audio dub (or in spanish audio without english subtitles).
Extras a Trailer, trashy trailers for other films and a longer version
of the film in 4:3 fullscreen english audio (but don't bother with
this as the extra scene is Patrizias parents talking)
