Rapists and murderers going unpunished are a dime a dozen in real life, and it's only expected that a writer of fiction, in a fictitious film, bring the case to closure.
Creaking Projectors is presenting a thriller "The Secret In Their Eyes" ("El Secreto De Sus Ojos" in Spanish), on 21st November, at Syn, Taj Deccan.
It is a 2009 Argentine crime thriller film, directed by Juan Jose Campanella. The film is based on Eduardo Sacheri's novel La Pregunta De Sus Ojos (The Question In Their Eyes), and stars Ricardo Dar?n, Soledad Villamil, Javier Godino, Guillermo Francella and Pablo Rago.
In 1999, retired Argentinian federal justice agent Benjamin Esposito is writing a novel, using an old closed case as material. The case involved the brutal rape and murder of Liliana Coloto. In addition to seeing the extreme grief of the victim's husband Ricardo Morales, Benjamin, his assistant Pablo Sandoval, and newly-hired department chief Irene Menendez-Hastings were personally affected by the case as Benjamin and Pablo tracked the killer.
The process of revisiting the case is all about closure for Benjamin. He tries to speak to the key players in the case, most specifically Irene, and tries to end the novel.
The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards, making Argentina the first country in Latin America to win it twice (having already won for The Official Story in 1985). This happened 3 weeks after being awarded the Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film of 2009 (the Goya Awards are the Spanish equivalent of the American Academy Awards). As of 2010, it has become the second biggest box office success in Argentine film history, surpassed only by Leonardo Favio's 1975 classic Nazareno Cruz Y El Lobo ("Nazareno Cruz And The Wolf").
The entry ticket is priced at Rs. 100 per head. Please contact 6666-3939 for further details.
