Marshland @ 2:34pm

Primary tabs

Winner of ten Goya awards (including Best Picture, Director, and Actor), MARSHLAND has been compared to "True Detective" and David Fincher’s dark policiers, but its command of context — both geographical and historical — sets this moody thriller apart. The place is the swampy, sultry southern region of Andalusia, and the time is 1980, when Spain is still in slippery transition between the death of Franco and the birth of democracy. That split is reflected in the two Madrid cops — young liberal-leaning Pedro (Arévalo) and former fascist enforcer Juan (Gutiérrez) — who are sent to the hinterlands to investigate the disappearance of two teenage girls. Álex Catalán’s cinematography makes masterful use of high and low, from the stunning aerial shots of the Guadalquivir delta to the ground-level vistas that immerse us in the region’s murky terrain and murkier politics.
