TIFF 09: A Trailer For Argentine Crime Thriller THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES
Check the trailer below!
Newly retired from his career in Argentina's criminal court, Benjamín Espósito (Ricardo Darín) begins writing a novel about a case from his past that continues to haunt him. In 1974, a beautiful young newlywed was raped and murdered in her home while her husband worked at the bank. Espósito was sent to investigate the horrifying crime.
Looking at the gaze of a man in photos from the murdered woman's college years, a younger Espósito instinctively feels he has his killer. Tracking down the suspect becomes a personal obsession that draws him and his colleague, the brilliant but unreliable alcoholic Pablo Sandoval (Guillermo Francella), into ever-riskier situations. The case also intensifies Espósito's relationship to his young boss, Irene Menéndez Hastings (Soledad Villamil), a striking, Ivy League-educated woman whom he secretly, hopelessly adores. While initially critical of his unsanctioned sleuthing tactics, she soon becomes a partner in the investigation. Despite their dedication, however, inept officials and politics both internal and external to the court - the seventies was a turbulent era in Argentine history - threaten to let justice slip away.
