- This study entitled Women's Faces Against Patriarchal Domination, a further study of the film Marlina The Murderer in Four Acts using Algirdar Greimas' narrative semiotics theory. The research will find out the actant model and functional model to see the plots, characters and hidden aim inside the text. The research also sees Richard Krevolin's Scene-o-gram model to sharpen the plot and characters in the film. The results of the study show that the six actants in the Greimas model are mentioned as subject, object, sender and recipient showed the meaning of the struggle against patriarchal domination that occurs throughout the story with violence and emotion as the main traitors and female characters who are the helpers of the main characters in achieving their desires. Meanwhile, a conflict-filled storyline can be read in a functional scheme that tells the beginning, the transformation that contains conflict until the final situation as the end of the story in the film. From the semiotic square, it can be found that the inner structure which is the main theme in this film is about masculine versus feminine as a simple movement of feminism to fight the gap among gender and ethical versus indelicate as a reflection of eastern Indonesian culture
