Four young women ride together in the remote countryside of La Plata. On the way, they witness a crime. A local gang of trash shot a girl and left her for dead. The friends drag the victim into their car and rush to the nearest police station. When they reach a village, the girl has bled to death and they want to make a statement. When the leader of the gang walks in, they discover to their dismay that he is the boss of the local police. With the foot on the accelerator, the girls drive away as quickly as possible. However, the gang manages to overtake them and get stuck. What follows is a terrible ordeal and a merciless, violent circle of bloody revenge and revenge.Written by
Looking at the cover of I'll Never Die Alone it seems to come across as some wannabe exploit flick. Which I guess it is, as it doesn't really bring anything new to the sub-genre of rape/revenge exploitation. But what it does do, it does very well.
The story is about a gaggle of four femininas going on a lil drive, and they happen to pass a dying girl on the road. The other comment said one of the girls witnessed it. I guess I totally missed that. Anyways, they go back and pick her up, and see the guys who were responsible for her injuries. The baddies eventually meet up with the girls not long after...and you know what kinda things go down next.
When it comes down to it the rape/revenge flick is a pretty easy exploit flick to make. Grab some gung-ho actors and actresses, and a good make-up artist. Bingo. But at the same time it's not that easy to make an accomplished one. Which thankfully is what Adrián García Bogliano has done here. With a slow-burn style that tries to suck you into the Argentine wilderness, and long intimate shots of graphic sequences, he instead of making it an overly extreme flick, it ends up becoming more emotional.
As I just mentioned, the director enjoys taking long shots of his actresses. And this tends not to work so well sometimes. There were a couple one-shot sequences that lasted for far too long. A shot that felt stylish, eventually started feeling artsy, and then like the director was trying too hard. But the thing is, I'd rather have a director try hard, than not try at all.
Because of a cast of pretty good actors (besides the cute flabby girl), a few choice scenes of brutal violence, some sleazy rape, and the director's appealing style, No Morire Sola very easily becomes a recommendable modern exploitation flick that many should enjoy. And one I hope to enjoy more once I see it with subtitles.
