Marshland (15)

Crime, Thriller

In the MARSHLAND a serial killer is on the loose. Two homicide detectives who appear to be poles apart must settle their differences and bring the murderer to justice before more young women lose their lives.

The critical consensus

A gripping police procedural thriller from writer-director Alberto Rodríguez with understated character (and political) depth as Spain’s fascist past looms over all the characters.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 03/08/2015

Terrific, multi award-winning Spanish thriller from Alberto Rodríguez.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 03/08/2015

It’s surely a coincidence but this Spanish crime drama shares many elements with the HBO drama, including some breathtaking camerawork.

***(*)(*)Leslie Felperin, The Guardian, 06/08/2015

Director Alberto Rodríguez builds up a pleasing air of ambiguity even as his characters are solving the expertly crafted mystery at its core.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 08/08/2015

If the intrigue doesn’t quite deliver there’s always great landscape, ominous atmosphere and Wallander-style morose cops to enjoy.

***(*)(*)Jonathan Romney, The Observer, 09/08/2015

With each new discovery, the film becomes more intriguing and doubts are raised about almost everyone, barring the director who has done a first-class job.
