The Secret in Their Eyes
I just saw this film last night, El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret in Their Eyes), the Argentinian film that won the best foreign language film Oscar for 2010. My husband and I were blown away! What an excellent movie and it was far, far superior than anything on the mediocre list of nominees for best picture that the Oscars managed to churn out this year.
We were quickly drawn in to this murder mystery with a love story thrown in. We just couldn't tear our eyes away. Stellar performances by a wonderful cast working with an excellent script.
The Secret in Their Eyes is a riveting crime story that starts in 1974 when a young wife is brutally raped and murdered. Twenty years later, the court investigator who worked on the case is now retired and decides to write a book about his experiences while still trying to resolve some loose ends in the mystery and in his own love life. I can't give away any more. It's best not to know too much when watching this film but please do catch it if you can. Highly recommended.
