The Official Story

#39 on my List is to watch all of the Oscar winners for Best Foreign Film from 1980 till present. 

I recently saw The Official Story (la historia oficial, Argentina, 1985).
It is a beautiful, intelligent film which achieves that fine harmony of making a powerful political statement while also telling a moving story. Gentle and melancholy with strong performances, I think la historia oficial is an important and extremely relevant film even today.
