Spanish film of the Year – Marshland (2014)

marshland

2014 has been an extraordinarily pleasing year for Spanish cinema; in particular for Seville-born director Alberto Rodríguez, whose neo-noir period thriller Marshland overwhelmingly dominated the 29th edition of the Spanish Academy Goya Awards.

The film picked up 10 statuettes at the Saturday night gala, including best picture, director, actor and original screenplay, beating rivals Daniel Monzon’s El Niño and Carlos Vermut’s San Sebastian’s Golden Shell winner Magical Girl. A resounding box office and critical success in its own country, Marshland follows two homicide detectives as they try to solve a series of murders in Spain’s deep south unsettling wetlands. Described as “True Detective set in the Andaluz swamplands”, Marshland will be screened at Glasgow Film Festival on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th February.
