Winner of the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Campanella's thriller is set in Buenos Aires in 1999, and centres on retired investigator Benjamin whose efforts to write a novel are frustrated when he finds himself unable to shake off his memories of a twenty-five year old unresolved rape and murder case. It highlights too the turbulent nature of Argentina in the 1970s, a period in which the country was descending into military dictatorships. Benjamin’s search for the truth will put him at the centre of a judicial nightmare, as the mystery of the heinous crime continues to unfold, testing the limits of a man seeking justice and personal fulfilment.
