Imagine True Detective set in the Andaluz swamplands and you begin to get the measure of Alberto Rodriguez ’s atmospheric, richly textured Spanish murder mystery. It is 1980 and Spain is slowly emerging from the shadows of the Franco era. In the sleepy backwater of Villafranco del Guadalquivir, two teenage girls have disappeared. Detectives Pedro (Raúl Arévalo) and Juan (Javier Gutiérrez) arrive from Madrid to investigate and soon find themselves at odds with a community deeply suspicious of their presence and yoked to misogynistic attitudes of the past. A superb Southern gothic thriller.
