Review: Marshland

16 Jul 15

Beautifully filmed slow-paced thriller

Hidden amongst the dross of school holiday movies is a great little Spanish flick - "Marshland". Anyone who enjoys a good cop flick or TV show (think especially "True Detective" 1) will enjoy this film. Beautifully photographed it captures its time and place extremely well. The setting is Andalusia, Spain at the beginning of the 1980s as Spain was emerging from the Franco years. 2 young girls have gone missing and 2 very different homicide detectives arrive from the big smoke to investigate.... 4 stars.
