Rating:
R
Open Your Eyes is a foreign psychological thriller film directed by Alejandro Amenabar that retells the story of 25-year-old Cesar (Eduardo Noriega), a prisoner in an unknown prison cell. A former womanizer, Cesar narrates his story to the prison psychiatrist Antonio (Chete Lera), beginning with how his once good-looking appearance was destroyed by a car crash, an accident caused by his obsessive ex-lover Nuria (Najwa Nimri) in her suicide attempt. The disfigurement causes Sofia (Penelope Cruz), his best friend's girlfriend and his one love, to reject him. Disorienting hallucination leads him to believe that Sofia had turned into Nuria, pushing him to smother her in her sleep as payback for destroying his face. Throughout his story, he begins to flash to the truth of his hallucinations including his visit to a company called Life Extensions, which specialize in cryonics and virtual reality dreams. Cesar struggles to come to grips with what was reality and what was a harsh nightmare, trying to open his eyes to the truth. Open Your Eyes was later remade by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky, starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz replaying her role.moreless
