Unfulfilled promise of a good thriller
17 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Following up on the success of "The secret in their eyes" comes another Argentine psychological thriller starring Ricardo Darín, a professor of law who suspects one of his students of committing a heinous crime in the university where he teaches a postgraduate course on law. Strong performances all around, especially Calu Rivero as the victim's sister. Unfortunately there are some very serious flaws in the pace and cinematography, which at times gets so pretentious it comes across as amateurish. The first 60 minutes of this movie are excruciatingly slow and filled with close-up shots. Close-ups of hands, eyes, fingers, cigarettes, coffee mugs. The very few wide shots are from a very low angle. Whether the idea was to make it experimental or artsy, it failed, and it becomes annoying when you get to see the dirt in the skin pores of the protagonist.

The topics of justice, fairness, ethics and the law are brought up repeatedly but regrettably never get discussed deeper than coffee-table level. The plot is set up in a promising and original way, but it quickly gets bogged down in a succession of long, meaningless shots and the story loses grip. After a while the suspense atmosphere appears contrived and more or less imposed by the music and the cinematography rather than the story unfolding. This movie could have been great, but some of the key elements that make a good crime/psychological thriller are absent.
