The Secret in Their Eyes 2009 ★★★½

Oscar-winning Argentine drama. A retired federal agent is drawn back to a twenty-five year old case; the rape and murder of a young woman.
Well-plotted and acted, and the jumps between 1974 and 2000 are pretty seamless. It does sag in the middle a little, and could have done with some judicial trimming, but the ending is a sneaky punch to the gut, and one that will stick in my mind for a long time.
