Synopsis:
Open Your Eyes is an intriguing mix of fantasy and horror, exploring the collision between dreams and reality. Central to the film is a remarkable performance by the sexy, Spanish enchantress Penelope Cruz, star of Volver and Vanilla Sky, which was the Hollywood remake of 'Open Your Eyes', starring Cruz alongside Tom Cruise. Fate has always smiled on Cesar (Eduardo Noriega) until now. The night he meets his ideal woman, Sofia (Cruz), he is confronted by Nuria, a woman infatuated with him to the point of obsession. Insane with jealousy, Nuria crashes her car, killing herself and horribly disfiguring Cesar. After the fateful crash, reality, dreams, memory and madness blend together.
Cesar awakens in a psychiatric prison, undergoing evaluation for a murder he can't quite remember. As he slowly begins to piece together a past of mistaken identities and betrayals, Cesar learns that sometimes you can't wake up from a nightmare, even if you do Open Your Eyes.

Alejandro Amenabar at his best. This is a film that you could watch over and over again, the complex and strange plot is portrayed in a very realistic way. One to watch for sure.
