This review is from: The Secret in Their Eyes [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a rare film as it is one that I would recommend to all my friends despite their varying cinematic tastes. It has something for nearly everyone without every seeming contrived. There is violence, love, humour, politics and mystery along with great acting, a sharp script and highly accomplished cinematography.
The film starts slowly but soon becomes gripping. Though I have a few minor gripes with the believability of the story I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and was particularly impressed with the dialogue and the acting. Pablo Rago's scenes in particular stood out for me and I have to admit to shedding a tear more than once.
Intelligent without being convoluted, intricate but not overly complicated I highly recommend to anyone with a love of film.
