The Secret in Their Eyes - Movie

2009. Spanish- Argentine movie. A judiciary employee (Esposito) and his boss (Irene), investigate a rape and murder while dealing with their own romance. The investigation by the police is superficial and they convict some migrant workers. The judiciary employee finds a photograph among the family archives in which he finds a man looking at the victim in a particular way. He believes there is a passion in his eyes and investigates. He finds that person missing and follows him with no results. In the meantime, his assistant gets shot and everyone moves on. The story picks up 25 years later when Esposito meets Irene with a draft of his novel, about the incident, and he finally finds closure, in the crime and his life.

Tad long but engaging crime thriller.
