This Is What Happens When You Remake an Oscar-Winning Argentine Film for US Audiences
To return to the original question, it is pointless to compare this mainstream entertainment film with the work of Michael Haneke and Jacques Audiard. I would heartily recommend it as a great night out at the pictures.

Apart from the make-up, it seems to me a highly professional piece of work and a very interesting text in terms of Argentinian film culture. I love this film.

I thought this was a pretty trenchant study of human memory with the protagonist being a writer. Were it not for its slick nature, I guess this movie would have been celebrated. I was also impressed — it works effectively as a political thriller and the performances were excellent; the sequence in the lift which you have used a picture from is one of the moments of the year for me — the sense of powerlessness is what makes it so special.

I really loved it, and fear any future Brad and Angelina US remake. Darin was outstanding amongst an exceptional cast. Reading up on it has definitely piqued my interest in Argentinian cinema.

Ray does away with this structural conceit, making his story much more straightforward while fueling the present-tense reminiscing with the possibility that the guy who so eluded our protagonist, Ray Caston Ejiofor all those years ago might just be found again. The bad guy in the American thriller is coded as foreign and alien in a way that makes him more of an immediate and obvious threat.
His decision to, in a bit of much celebrated gender-bending casting, turn the character of Morales from a widower to a grieving mother makes the American remake more intensely about grief. Indeed, the sustained long shot wherein Jess discovers her murdered daughter in a garbage dumpster is chilling and haunting. Her muffled screams all but set the tone for the remainder of the film. That Jess is personally invested in the police investigation on who killed her daughter both in flashbacks and in the present day make the story feel more contained, more intensely personal, than the rather sprawling story Campanella fleshed out.
Long gone are any attempts at political allegories.
