Marshland

#1 Post by vealster1 » Wed Aug 05, 2015 11:08 am

Saw this movie last night along with a group of other fmuk people.

Really enjoyed it well acted, gritty detective story.

The guy who introduced it said it was a nordic noir film but its in Spanish??

8 / 10

This is a Spanish filmed, filmed in southern Spain marshlands.

It vividly depicts a town on the deep south still anchored in the past on what was the transition from dictatorship to full democracy. Early 80's.

I liked how the way the movie is filmed transfers the viewer the feeling of heat, humidity and sweat.
Performances greatly executed and a brilliant filmography.

Loved the intro credits as something different.

Agreed the 8/10

I really enjoyed this. The atmosphere was fantastic, making for a really gripping situation. The Post Franco context added real depth. The scenery was amazing - and I thought I knew this region. The period detail seemed spot on.

Totally loved this. One of the best films in ages. Addressing a country in a state of flux, and the challenges of change for the new environment. Loads of undercurrents here..

I'm very tempted to give it 10/10... but have opted for 9.5/10.

One of my favourite films this year. The cinematography was stunning. The story and the acting was great. Really tense.

8/10

Also one of my favourite films of this year. From start to finish this film has so many layers and back stories I definitely have to watch it again. It's set in some sort of abstract time in which you can't pin point. Brilliantly acted with a solid storyline.

10/10
