“This superbly crafted, richly textured thriller is one of the strongest Spanish films of the year” – Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter

Set in just post-Franco Spain, a seasoned, fascist-era cop and an upright, untainted rookie are sent from Madrid to investigate serial murders in the hauntingly beautiful backwaters of Andalucia – the marshlands of the title. Their tense partnership forms the subject of the film as much as the twisting plot itself.

“Winner of 10 Goya Awards in 2015, including best film, best director … best actor and best art direction, this is an unmissable festival highlight which showcases brooding Spanish cinema at its very best” Spanish Film Festival
