Open your eyes... and stop dreaming.

A man falls in love with the girl of his dreams but his ex-lover doesn't let go so easily and he ends up with a grotesquely disfigured face in the process. The rest of the movie is his quest to overcome his disfigurement. Sounds like a conventional against-all-odds kind of story, doesn't it? Well, it isn't. There are bizarre occurrences, paranoia, violence and murder. The movie examines the nature... read more

With this movie, Alejandro Amenabar became a household name and went to direct ‘The Others’ in Hollywood. After ‘Mar Adentro’, it became rather quiet with the Spanish director but, apparently, he is coming back with something new in 2015 after a 6 years hiatus. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I find it rather difficult to choose between this one and the remake which one is the bes... read more

The original version of Vanilla Sky, so to speak. (Vanilla Sky is a remake of this movie.)
The story is slightly different though... but the voice at the beginning ("abre los ojos") is the same... :-)

Description: An imprisoned man hides his face behind a mask is telling his story, as a flashback, to a psychiatrist: his name is César, he is an orphan but he had inherited a fortune from his parents, and he used to live in a luxurious house of his his own. He was also very handsome and a renowned womanizer. His best friend, Pelayo, was jealous of César because he was not very successful with women. But one night, Pelayo showed up in one of César's parties with a beautiful woman named Sofía. When César met her and talked to her for a while, he began to feel something he had never felt before: love. And, although she was supposed to be P ... (more)

"5.1, PC Onnekseni en tiennyt Abre Los Ojosin sisällöstä ennakkoon yhtikäs mtään, en edes tarinan alkuasetelmaa. Elokuva alkaa rakkauselokuvana, mutta sekoittelee muitakin genrejä hienosti tarinaan sen edetessä. Tarinan suhteen puhtaalta pöydältä lähdettessä Abre Los Ojos osasi yllättää erittäin positiivisesti, ja sen kehittyminen alkukohtauksesta läpi elokuvan voimakkaaseen huipennukseen on eeppinen; Mikko Leppil... Eduardo Noriegan samaistuttavasti esittämän päähenkilön "

"10th of June, DVD Avaa silmäsi on turhaan jäänyt menestyneempien 90-luvun lopun ja 2000-luvun alun psykologisten trillerien varjoon ja kyseessä on todellinen espanjalaiselokuvan helmi. Ohjaaja Alejandro Amenábar yhdistelee nerokkaasti rakkaustarinan, psykologisen jännityksen ja jopa tieteiselokuville tyypilliset pohdinnat kiehtovaksi sopaksi. Kokonaisuus ei ole enemmän kuin osiensa summa, mutta kun kaikki osa-alueet toimivat vähintäänkin loistavasti, niin kauheasti ei valitettavaa lö"
