The Secret in Their Eyes 18 rating

A retired legal investigator revisits an unresolved case that still haunts him, in Juan José Campanella’s taut, Academy Award winning, thriller.

Thriller 2009 129 mins

Director: Juan José Campanella



For 25 years, an unsolved murder case has remained indelibly etched on legal investigator Benjamín Espósito’s (Ricardo Darín) mind. Now retired and hoping to find closure, he decides to go back over the story to write a novel based on the case, and revisits a past full of love, death and corruption. But those memories, once released and replayed a thousand times over, will change his view of that past. And rewrite his future.

Winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Argentinian director Juan José Campanella gives us a taut and twisty romantic thriller, driven by a fantastically understated performance by regular collaborator, Darín. Viewer Advisory: Contains one scene of sexual violence and brief strong nudity.
