Synopsis:
Spain's deep-south, 1980. In a small village frozen in time - close to the labyrinth of the marshlands and rice paddies - a serial killer has taken residence and caused the disappearance of several adolescents that no one seems to have missed. But, when two young sisters disappear during the annual festivities, their mother forces an investigation that brings two homicide detectives from Madrid to try and solve the mystery. Juan and Pedro both have extensive experience in homicides yet are very different in methods and style. They will soon face obstacles for which they were not prepared and become ensnared in a web of intrigue fed by the apathy and introverted nature of the locals.
Nothing is what it seems in this isolated and opaque region and the investigation encounters unexpected difficulties. Both men realise they must put aside their professional differences if they are to stop the person responsible for the disappearance of the sisters before more young

Interesting Spanish thriller clearly influenced by Nordic TV drama - Marshland review by PV

An interesting Spanish thriller which has clearly been influenced by Nordic TV drama. Lots of landscape and moods - and very unSpanish in its feel in many ways.

Basically, it's the old plot: the hunt for a serial killer. This is complicated by various issues - not least of which is the uneasy relationshio between one Spanish police officer and his new partner who may or may not have been a member of Franco's gestapo.

Visually interesting, with a side to an unknown corner of Spain explored on screen, this is a good thriller but perhaps more interesting in its depiction of Spain and its analysis of Spain's troubled civil war history.

4 stars.

Characters under-developed - Marshland review by CA

This film had far too much of fisticuffs and explosions for me, although the style of ragged clothes mixed with futuristic engineering is a great look.

Two stars.

One of the most haunting and atmpspheric movies I have ever seen - Marshland review by IM

"CA" is obviously referring to a different movie! the landscape is mond boggling, really the star. Excellent buddy cop performances too and a haunting, ambivalent ending. superb.
