Film Series: Abre Los Ojos

1997. Spain. Dir: Alejandro Amenábar. With Penélope Cruz. 117 min.

 

A handsome Casanova is horribly disfigured in a car crash and left to re-piece his identity, but the boundaries of dream and reality start to blur before his eyes. The film that inspired the endearingly disastrous Vanilla Sky, this Spanish original succeeds with its psychosexual thrills, bizarre plot turns, and the welcome absence of Tom Cruise.
