Movie Info

An accidental murder finds a lesbian couple on the run in this dark and gritty thriller from director Monica Lisa Stambrini. When service station employee Lenni's (Regina Orioli) glamorous mother arrives to visit her daughter, the situation soon takes a turn for the worst when Lenni's girlfriend Stella (Maya Sansa) ends up killing the overbearing matriarch. Attempting to dispose of the body while avoiding the wrath of a trio of increasingly menacing joyriders, the duo's dilemma grows even more urgent as their savage act becomes difficult to cover up. When the couple offers a ride to an unsuspecting priest, the mother's disembodied voice continues to hound the pair from beyond the grave.

Critic Reviews for Gasoline

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

Stambrini's dialogue seems especially dull, and the screenplay lacks dramatic urgency.

By the time we get to the big finish, it feels as if we've merely been poked repeatedly in the ribs with a really good-looking stick.

Stambrini and her cinematographer, Fabio Cianchetti, give the proceedings a high-tech, energetic look that keeps the thrill and entertainment levels high.

Top Critic

Containing elements from more than a few of its similarly themed predecessors, the loopy but tautly staged Gasoline still manages to be engrossing throughout its brief running time.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A film that feels like a Europeanized compendium of just about every indie alt-action movie cliche of the past decade.

Top Critic

Devoid of originality, Gasoline is at least a model of modesty -- a road movie that goes nowhere slowly, and ends up where it began.
