General information

Rated 4 out of 5

“The Secret in Their Eyes” is a 2009 Argentine-Spanish crime drama film directed by Juan Jose Campanella, based on the novel of the same name by Eduardo Sacheri. The movie tells the story of a retired legal counselor who decides to write a novel about an unsolved case he worked on 25 years ago, which had a deep impact on his life.

The film has a compelling plot with well-developed characters and an excellent screenplay. The cinematography and direction are superb, creating a tense and emotionally charged atmosphere that keeps the audience engaged throughout the movie.

One of the strongest aspects of the film is the performance of the actors. Ricardo Darin, who plays the retired counselor, delivers an outstanding performance, portraying the character’s anguish and pain with great authenticity. Soledad Villamil, who plays his former colleague, also gives a nuanced and powerful performance.

The film deals with themes such as love, loss, justice, and revenge, and does so with sensitivity and intelligence. The story unfolds in a non-linear manner, moving back and forth in time, which adds depth and complexity to the plot. The film also touches on Argentina’s turbulent political history, providing a context for the characters’ actions and motivations.

Overall, “The Secret in Their Eyes” is a gripping and moving movie that explores complex themes with great skill and sensitivity. It’s a must-see for fans of crime dramas and anyone interested in thought-provoking cinema.
