Light going throw opaque material?

Hi, I have a problem with mi rimlight, I post two images, the first with the problem and the other with the solution or maybe the way it should render, any advice? Im from 3dsmax and there I know what would be, but Im new in maya. Rendering with mentalray and all kind of shaders behaves the same (lambert, mia_material_x, blinn).
Thanks in advance.

The light in the eyes cavity shouldn't be there!

This is how it should be.

Please help me!

select the light, scroll down to the shadows section and activate "use ray trace shadows"
