The Secret in Their Eyes (El secreto de sus ojos) (2009)

Director: Juan José Campanella. Cast:: Ricardo Darín, Soledad Villamil, Carla Quevedo, Pablo Rago. 127 min. Rated R. Argentina/Spain. Drama.

This year's Foreign-Language Oscar winning masterpiece is profound on so many levels: the meaning of true friendship, the insanity of keeping your emotions deep inside, the hardcore bitterness of revenge, and even the origins of "thugocracy". One unbelievable very long Hitchcockian aerial shot hovering over a stadium and leading to a chase sequence within the stadium corridors, will have the viewer gasping: How the hell did they do that? And a line spoken by a character at the end is guaranteed to haunt you for some time:

"At least tell him to talk to me."
