lachyasAn absolutely amazing film. It's gripping from the very beginning, with phenomenal acting, a watertight script, and a great dual-narrative structure that drives the story along to a riveting conclusion. The long take of the football stadium has to be one of my favourite shots ever, just thinking of the logistics in play there is staggering. It's also the true climax of the film in my opinion, because while what comes after it is also very powerful, the rest of the movie is more of a slow burn drama while that scene is pure explosiveness.
The love story that runs parallel to the murder investigation is kind of standard, but because it's surrounded by such an extraordinary and gripping mystery, and is between two very well-developed characters, that is easily forgiven. The whole time I thought the movie was leading to an artificial twist, but as it turns out the ending is much, much better and more nuanced than that. The Secret In Their Eyes is basically perfect for what it is, and should be mandatory viewing for anyone even remotely interested in not just Argentinian cinema but cinema in general.
ClassicLadyMarvelous movie! Intense, eventful, shocking, grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. The acting was subtly expressive and the script was riveting. I'll be thinking of this one for a long time. Outstanding!
TanviSubtle, intense, gripping. This is definitely one of the finest movies I've ever seen. It just flows effortlessly. The camera-work is flawless. Lots of great scenes - some intense, some breath-taking, some profound. Very few movies do, but IMO this movie has it all - script, acting, cinematography, dialogue, pace, music score. Must see for anyone who likes fine cinema!
dirte_lawndreJust wow. That film hit me hard. Amazing drama!
vladdyFilms always get a backlash when they win awards over more worthy contenders. Maybe The White Ribbon and Une Prophete are greater, but isn't that irrelevant? Comparing this movie to itself and no others, I thought it was really excellent.
RealenurThe Hunt / escape sequence in the middle of the film is undoubtedly some of the best camera work I have witnessed.
ChrisReynoldsVery powerful and compelling drama, well scripted and beautifully acted.
ReVisionA very beautiful movie, really powerful.
FluegiThis movie is stunning, it holds my breath. The plot spans over 25 years and it is believable, the development of the characters fascinating.
mmobesoThis just became one of my favourite movies
guidecarvalhoMy favorite movie. This is it.
BrunoLIt's a incredible film. I felt a lot of diferent emotions seeing this film.
Cee TallisA very powerful film. Excellent performances from the most excellent (and few) actors we have. It truly looks too good to be Argentinean, but once in a while we do make some good stuff!
