Based on Eduardo Sacheri's novel 'La pregunta de sus ojos', the film won numerous accolades including the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards and, as of 2010, it was already second on the all-time Argentinian box office records table.
Summary: Comments:

The story unearths the buried romance between a retired judiciary employee and a judge who worked together a quarter century ago. They recount their efforts on an unsolved 1974 rape and murder that is an obsession not only for them, but for the victim's husband and the killer. The double setting frames the period of Argentina's Dirty War (1976–1983), a violent time when criminality often went unpunished.

The Secret in Their Eyes received very positive reviews from critics, not only in Argentina, but also abroad; it holds a 91% "Certified Fresh" rating at Rotten Tomatoes, with the critical consensus being: "Unpredictable and rich with symbolism, this Argentinian murder mystery lives up to its Oscar with an engrossing plot, Juan Jose Campanella's assured direction, and mesmerizing performances from its cast".
