Told in flashback, the romantic crime thriller The Secret in Their Eyes is winner of this year's Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

A riveting Argentine thriller spiked with witty dialogue and poignant love stories, "The Secret in Their Eyes" interweaves the personal lives of a team of state prosecutors with a manhunt spanning 25 years. Director Juan Jose Campanella ("Same Love, Same Rain," "Son of the Bride") is one of Argentina's most communicative storytellers, and this entry qualifies as a high point in his career.

Holding the viewer in thrall for most of its two-hour running time, it has the kind of universal appeal that unites critics and audiences and can look forward to worldwide sales that could jump beyond the usual Spanish-language markets

One day in 1985, new judge Irene Menendez Hastings (Soledad Villamil) turns up. A beautiful sophisticate with a degree from Cornell and family connections, she instantly steals Benjamin's heart.

Campanella and co-scripter Eduardo Sacheri open the story 25 years later, when Benjamin is a white-haired retiree who has decided to write a novel about a horrific case he can't get out of his mind. He visits Irene, now some kind of chief judge, in his old office to get her reaction and discuss the case.

Flash back to the brutal rape and murder of a young woman married to a quiet bank employee (Pablo Rago). Two workmen arrested by the police are beaten into a false confession, much to Benjamin's disgust. Through obstinate persistence, he tracks down the real murderer to his family home and corners him in a breathtaking, swooping-camera chase through a football stadium that is one of the film's highlights.

This, however, is just the beginning of a judicial nightmare.
The film's political commentary on the years of the dictatorship remains subtle, never foregrounded, but is a necessary presence in a film about the search for justice and the centrality of memory.

I could not find the showtime On the Landmark website. I will post it as soon I know. I believe the evening show should be around 7.
I will be in the lobby 15 minutes before the beginning. I look as in my Pic


We can have dinner after the movie. Should not be hard to find a place in Capitol Hill
