The Secret in Their Eyes (2009)

A mind-blowing crime thriller in a nutshell.

The plot is about a retired criminal court employee(Benjamin Esposito) planning to write a novel based on an investigation of a rape and murder that has an enduring, decades-long effect on the people closest to it: the investigators, the victim’s husband, and the killer.
The film has a unique sense of humor at the beginning which drags us into the movie. Fernando Blanco, the comedian plays an alcoholic with a lot of respect for friendship.
Brilliantly scripted and directed by Juan José Campanella who has placed the twists perfectly and comes out of nowhere. And the cinematography by Felix Monti is scintillating particularly a sequence when investigators chase a suspect amidst a football match leaves us perplexed with ideas and creates the required tension. Ricardo Darin who plays the role of Benjamin Esposito has given a performance of his lifetime and is equally supported by Soledad Villamil who plays the role of Irene Menéndez Hastings.
A must watch thriller of a crime which binds through love and nostalgia.
