A woman believes that her adopted daughter is the child of one of the many political enemies of the state who were murdered by the government. Fantastic performances, great script and it never got boring.

Good movie. Norma Aleandro is monumental in this shattering political drama. Because it is so superbly written and acted, its moral message is powerfully delivered. It condemns the military dictatorship as well as its enablers.

A truly excellent portrayal of people and the different things that happened during Argentina's Dirty War.

The Official story is a good planned story, but it plays like another soap opera, so I wasn't so excited.

Meet the most unlikely of activitsts. The transformation of this upper-class middle-aged woman from passive conservative to stunned and outraged citizen is a marvel!

!!!!Una Obra Maestra desde Argentina!!!

Un referente obligado de la cinematografia argentina y latinoamericana. Es una pelicula bastante seria por el tema tan sensible que aborda; una herida que aun no cierra y cuya marca ha quedado tatuada en el alma del pueblo argentino. Finalizado el llamado 'proceso de reorganizacion nacional' (la dictadura en Argentina entre 1976 - 1983) Alicia, una maestra de escuela (Norma Leandro) comienza a tener dudas sobre la forma en que su esposo Roberto (Hector Alterio) obtuvo la adopcion de su hija. De una manera inquietante comienza a indagar sobre la verdadera historia de su hija adoptiva encontrandose con una serie de motivos que sumergen a Alicia en una inmensa congoja, debido a que ella jamas tuvo alguna relacion directa con la cantidad de sucesos que ocurrieron en Argentina durante esta dictadura.. Es una pelicula fuerte porque se centra en hechos que hasta hoy, se mantienen tristemente en la historia.

Saw this for a class. It was very good. I especially loved the scenes with the friend Ana.

A very strong film that slowly builds up the tension until the explosive ending. Norma Aleandro is amazing!

overall good movie but i guess i would like to see a little more education on the conspiracy surround the revolution and especialy the kidnappning of the babies

Le robo las palabras a un critico sin darle credito por ello, porque me creo rebelde: La Historia Oficial es una leccion impecable de como traducir un conflicto transversal en una historia intima sin perder ni una cuota de su resonancia politica ni emocional, porque lo que mas hace la pelicula es, precisamente, joderte los nervios de la emocion hasta la muerte. Potentisima.

A devastating look at the aftershocks of Argentina's "Dirty War" via a single family as a mother investigates her adopted daughter's past.
July 15, 2009
Very powerful movie even today. First class acting with very intelligent and moving screenplay.
June 14, 2009
Unos de los mejores films argentinos de todos los tiempos, aborda un tema muy comprometedor para la época en que fue filmado, cuando la democracia daba los primeros pasos en este país. Una trama conmovedora que remite a una de las paginas más dolorosas de la historia argentina.

Wonderful lead performance by Norma Aleandro and a compelling if sad story make this worth seeking out.
