About the Movie
Spain, 1966: Antonio (Javier Cámara, from “I’m So Excited!”) is a teacher and a Beatles fan – facets he combines by getting his pupils to recite the lyrics from “Help” in English class. When he learns that his idol John Lennon is making a film in Almería (Richard Lester’s “How I Won the War”) he resolves to meet him. On the journey he picks up two young runaways: Bethlehem, a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and Juanjo, a boy escaping a dictatorial father.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ultimately good-hearted and gracefully handled enough to transcend the leisurely slightness of its material.
Fresh: The actors help to bring this engaging tale to life.
Fresh: "Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed" is subtle in the truest sense, in that it says and suggests much, and does so definitely, but through a minimum of means.
Fresh: Javier Camara, best known here for his work with Pedro Almodovar, is quite good as the teacher, delivering a performance of real tenderness and depth. In Spanish with subtitles.
Very cute and scenic film
I really enjoyed this light-hearted story with enjoyable performances by the cast and beautiful scenery. A simple story with great characters. Even the old 1960’s european cars are fun to see.
