Italian director Stefano Incerti's by-the-throat political thriller Complici del Silenzio offers an angry, uncompromising look at Argentine totalitarian policies during the dictatorship of Jorge Redondo in the late 1970s. Alessio Boni stars as Maurizio, an Italian journalist who dreams of covering the 1978 World Cup in Buenos Aires. He has a secondary reason for visiting, as well: his uncle's family recently immigrated to Argentina and took up lucrative careers as architects, and the trip will provide him with the opportunity to visit them. Tragically, personal ties in the region lead to Maurizio's undoing: upon arrival, he visits a friend's ex-wife, Ana (Florencia Raggi), a teacher noted for her subversive anti-government activities. The two strike up a torrid affair and Maurizio delivers money to Anna, but Ana's ex-husband Pablo (Juan Leyrado) just happens to be a political official and orders the authorities to trail Maurizio, leading to his arrest and torture, and Ana's capture and imprisonment. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
