Last night, the closing night film of the Miami International Film Festival The Secret in Their Eyes won the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the Academy Awards. According to the festival's artistic director Tiziana Finzi, director Juan José Campanella will not only attend this year's closing night, he's bringing that little gold man statuette with him.
The Secret in Their Eyes is a Argentinean murder mystery, which Finzi believed to be better suited for America's cinematic sensibilities than the more graphic Peruvian film The Milk of Sorrow, screening tomorrow and Sunday at the festival.
Watch The Secret in Their Eyes this Saturday at 7p.m. at Gusman. Call 305-237-FILM or visit www.miamifilmfestival.com.
Here's Campanella accepting the award. He couldn't help but take a dig at Avatar.
