The Secret in their Eyes: Pssst, See this one.
Take two love stories, add a murder mystery, throw in some Argentinian political corruption, circa 1974, and what you get is one fascinating movie. The murder is a cold case, which is being revisited by a retired court investigator who's writing a novel based on the intriguing case. What he learns about the killer, himself and the woman in his life will shock and surprise you as much as it did him.
As tangled as this plot becomes, it never rings false, thanks to characters that are so well drawn and believable.
Does love ever die? Do memories ever disappeared? Does friendship have limits? How long can one live on memories alone?
This haunting movie opened the Movie Sluts eyes to what is really the most harrowing punishment and the most spectacular reward.
