The Secret in their Eyes

Nov 26: The Secret in their Eyes 2009, Argentina/Spain
Juan José Campanella, director.
Seeking closure on troubled memories, Benjamin, a retired legal innvestigator in contemporary Buenos Aires, is writing a novel about a brutal unsolved murder that he worked on during the corrupt and chaotic military dictatorship of the 70s and about his own unrequited love for Irene, the young lawyer -- now a judge -- he worked for at the time. The result is a spellbinding combination of mystery, romance, and historical memory -- along with three unforgettable performances and one of the most thrilling chase sequences in cinema history. No wonder it won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film of the year.
