Format: DVD
Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darín), a retired detective in Buenos Aires, is haunted by a shocking murder case he worked on twenty-five years ago. He decides to write a novel about it and returns to his old office to enlist the help of his former partner, a perpetually drunk but true-blue friend (Guillermo Francella), and his boss (Irene Menéndez Hastings), a beautiful woman he has secretly loved all this time.

This outstanding film won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. The script is extremely clever, mixing equally-compelling stories of crime and love. There are frequent flashbacks so we feel we really become involved in the case and know and care about the three main characters. The grizzly crime is thankfully seen only for a few fleeting moments but its horror keeps the story exciting and moving at a fast pace. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

The actors are all outstanding, so good I never felt they were acting. The entire film is riveting, the dialogue is realistic, and there is a great "what would you do?" ending. Heartily recommended for those who enjoy crime stories with twists and turns with occasional comic bits plus a bittersweet, unrequited love story.

This film totally deserved the Foreign Language Academy Award. A wonderful, dark story of crime and revenge. I've liked quite a few films out of Argentina and this one has to be one of my favourites. It's a bit of a throwback to the days of Film Noir, but of course, a modern take.

The cinematography is top notch, every shot is beautiful, and what a story! Well done!!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 26 2012
Format: DVD
This film is set in 1999 and Benjamin Eposito (Ricardo Darin) is a retired federal prosecutor a bit like a District Attorney in America. He has nothing to do since love has slipped through his fingers and he appears to have been married to the job. So finds himself with time and the past on his mind.

He therefore decides to write a book about an old case - `The Morales Case', this involved the brutal murder of a newly wed to her banker husband, Ricardo Morales (Pablo Rago). This takes him back to the events of 1974 when the terrible crime took place. His department were none too enthusiastic in prosecuting the case and instead set up some itinerant builders as they were considered to be trash, and beat confessions out of them. Eposito has other ideas; he has been touched by the love he sees in the eyes of the husband and moved by her effortless beauty. He has a thing about seeing behind someone's eyes and this is a central theme to the whole film, hence the title.

After his boss knocks him back he enlists the help of his drunken assistant, who despite his frailties is very loyal and intuitive and has a penchant for telling lies on the phone (even claims to be a sperm bank at one point). The story is told in flash back using his now reblossoming feelings for his ex colleague Irene Hastings (Soledad Villamil); he rediscovers more about himself as part of the process and her too. At one point the question is poised `how do you live a life full of nothing?' That too can be seen as central to the film as people fill their lives with the things that aren't important, more or less as coping stratagems for survival and realise their folly too late.

this is a very good movie to watch. I had trouble with the DVD region and playing it on my home theatre devices. Had to watch it from my laptop (where I can change the DVD region). If you buy this DVD be aware of that.

It is a movie that you need to watch several times to understand it well.
But it is fantastic. I recommend it.
