Like a Spanish True Detective, this superb period thriller from writer/director Alberto Rodriguez follows two ideologically opposed detectives in the moody Andalaz swamplands, on the hunt for the brutal murderer attacking young women. It’s set in the 80s at a time of deep political volatility with the cinematography beautifully capturing this murky corner of Spain, mirroring the detectives’ confusing, suspenseful investigation. Marshland won 10 Goya Awards this year – justly deserved in this pacy, atmospheric thriller linking Spain’s fascist past with a more modern self, still struggling to stay on the right side of the law.
