The Secret in Their Eyes review

The story could have been more engaging with better character development. The look of the film was gorgeous. Even the camerawork was crafty and artists compelling with their roles. Screenplay was impressive with loads of quotable lines: "Live and let live." "I remember those stupid things." "You have to be a little more patient." "This is the real world." “Memories are all we end up with.” “How can someone live an empty life?..How do you live a life full of nothing?” Its downside was its character history as mentioned in the beginning of this review and length. If only it were edited and directed in a manner where the leads had more background. The Secret in their Eyes may have some elements of Memento, it lacks the entertainment value despite its technical brilliance.

He can’t seem to wrap his head around the idea of the killer being redeemed or the victims husband getting over it. This is all done so well thanks to fantastic technical work.

Disturbing, beautiful and well deserved of Oscar!

“El secreto de sus ojos” (The Secret In Their Eyes) is a winner. A winner in many ways. Of course it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film earlier this year, but it has a winning script, winning cinematography and winning characters. How can you go wrong with a combination like that? There is so much praise to be sung about this film. It is a great thriller with more of a “How is it going to end?” type of suspense, rather than a “Who did it?” suspense. Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darin) is a retired federal justice agent, who has written a novel based on a case he investigated nearly 30 years ago in which a young woman was raped and murdered. It is a case he can’t let go of for how emotionally attached he became to all the people involved. We are taken back in time to relive the cas...
