Open Your Eyes

Year: 1997
Director: Alejandro Amenabar
Cast: Eduardo Noriega, Penelope Cruz
The basis for Vanilla Sky, which is an almost exact copy down to each line of dialogue (in Spanish, of course).

Hence, there's not much to say about it other than what I've already said about the Crowe/Cruise remake, which I saw before this. Most people seemed to think this was brilliant and that one was awful, but I can't see why - they're exactly the same. True, it looked like a vanity Tom Cruise project, but the performances and settings were up to adequate Hollywood standards.

In fact, the only reason to see this if you've already seen Vanilla Sky is for the flash of Penelope Cruz topless, in the exact same role she plays in both films.
