The Secret in Their Eyes (2009)


“How do you live a life full of nothing?”

Original name: El secreto de sus ojos

Director – Juan José Campanella

I saw it when I was in 11th. Back then (it does seem like way back!), even using the term Oscars was like privilege. Luckily they had this film ‘by mistake’ in the DVD counter for rent. I bought the film and 4 years later I have every single scene imprinted in my head. When a former federal agent decides to write a novel, he goes back to his past, 25 years rewind – to a case of rape and murder of a young woman that he solved but with a glitch in the ending. He isn’t satisfied with the main end and goes searching for the widower of the victim but only to realize something that he had never imagined in all these years.
