Winner of the best foreign-language Oscar in 2009, this marvellous thriller is full of unexpected plot twists and fascinating details. Esposito, a retired judicial investigator, is haunted by a case early in his career, when a young woman was brutally murdered. The murderer had been protected because of links to the military dictatorship of the time and Esposito feels it his duty to seek justice in the democratic Argentina of the new millennium. Parallel to this investigation runs a ‘will they or won’t they’ romance between Esposito and his upper-class boss, Isabel and the title of the film offers clues to the outcome of both stories.
