THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES

DVD Review by David Blackwell

 

DETAILS:  129 minutes, audio commentary, two featurettes, original theatrical trailer

VIDEO: 2.35:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO:  Spanish, French 5.1 Dolby Digital

Subtitles:  English, French, English subtitled commentary track

 

STUDIO:  Sony Pictures Classics/ SPHE/ 100 Bares/ Canal+ Espana/ Haddock Films

RELEASE DATE:  9-21-2010

THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES is the winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.   This film from Argentina is able to balance a love story with a detective story.   It follows a retired government attorney as he writes a novel about a case he was investigating 25 years ago.   He comes back into contact with the woman he worked with and still is in love with her (and yet never acted on those feelings).    THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES is about the things we let slip by- the ones we wish we took a chance on back then.  

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES is a promotional featurette for the film while CASTING THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES features auditions of supporting actors in the film.  The original theatrical trailer is also on the disc in addition to an audio commentary with Director Jose Campanena who discusses the story and the characters more than the production details.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES is one of the better foreign language films due to how it balances story and character.   Definitely it is worth seeing.
