    • Synopsis
    • Mix Robin Hood with voluptous burlesque pleasure, add a colourful cast of grotesque deviants, and you get a lusciously gripping coming-of-age fable in a post-feminist society.
      Robber Girls is an absurd journey through the goings-on of a modern-day forest. It follows two young rifle-wielding girls, Emily and maid-turned-fugitive Trizi, as they escape from the threats of a hideous sexually deviant sovereign. In a desperate attempt to save themselves from his grasp, and in Emily's case, the horror of her arranged marriage to his rich nephew, they survive by becoming merciless man-hating highway robbers. As their own sense of sexuality and moral ethics evolve in this strange world, and as they become desperate to survive, they're taken in by Madame Fleurie. She runs the forest's brothel, a rambunctuous world of dubious fetishistic behaviour. Sadly, this culminates in a grand-shoot out involving her host of big-bosomed employees, the semi-naked sovereign and his guards who have discovered their whereabouts. Luckily, the girls, and all the hookers manage to escape alive.
      Emily's love, the shy poet Josef, is caught in the woods. Emily and her new-found friends form a band of Robber Girls but this is immediately threatened when they are sought out and Emily is forced to go back to the sovereign's castle to be married. Thankfully, a band of merry-women, including Emily's podgy sister, decide to take action. Dressed as nuns, they shuffle into the wedding ceremony and launch a big rescue mission using rifles, shotguns and bows and arrows. Everything is called off just before the vows are exchanged.
      Robber Girls has an exhilerating cast of characters from horse-loving gardeners, to toxicomaniac prostitutes and it's littered with surprises; have you ever seen a sovereign's servant riding an electricity-generating bicycle? You now have the chance.
