Plot – Spoilers:
A retired Argentinian judicial officer Esposito looks back on a case from a couple decades back that he felt personally connected to – the murder of a young woman. Esposito has unresolved issues from the case and decides to revisit it by writing a book on it.

Secret in Their Eyes dwells on loss – specifically love. So you have the husband of the murder victim, and Esposito’s lost opportunity with a colleague. From an effedup pov, the latter tends to get in the way of the actual murder case, but some great scenes during the investigation make up for these sidesteps.

Genres: Detective-Mystery, Revenge, Captivity

    Not quite sure why this movie is classified effed-up but glad it is included here. I would see it as a crime/police/psychological thriller, the only possible EU aspect occurring minutes from the end. Another example of great cinema from Argentina.

    You know what’s strange? I’ve watched every effed movie on this site and I don’t think they’re effed up at all.

      Effedup, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder.
