Abre los ojos

Alejandro Amenábar Spanien, 1997

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Luk øjnene op

This is a ravishingly beautiful and emotional film. Amenabar's style reminds me of the poetic pulp of Jacques Tourneur. He's an ambitious director, and he fully succeeds here. His visual sensibilities are perfect, the camerawork, the colors, and his sense of composition. The actors invest the viewer emotionally, and it's difficult not to tear up. Humanistic sci-fi.
