The Secret In Their Eyes is a masterpiece

5 second plot: In the prime of his life Benjamín investigated the brutal rape and murder of a young woman. The case effected him deeply and personally. Now he's retired and wants to write a novel about it. It's not a shut case for him. He asks his boss from that time, who is also the secret love of his life, to help him with the book.

5 second review: This is an amazing picture. It's smooth but also brutal. It's funny but also shocking. The story builds up perfectly. It's complex with several story-lines intertwining. And the love story weaves right through it beautifully. Nice.

IMDb score: 8,3/10
Our score: 9,5/10
