Directed by: Jose Campanella
Staring: Ricardo Darin, Pablo Rago and Carla Quevedo
Winner of an Oscar for Best Foreign Film, Campenella’s thriller is set in Buenos Aires in 1999. It tells the story of a retired investigator whose attempts at writing a novel are frustrated by his inability to forget a rape and murder he was unable to resolve twenty five years earlier. At this time Argentina was becoming a military dictatorship and his enquiries put him at odds with the judiciary and tested him to his limits. A beautifully made film with terrific central performances.
