About the Movie
The original film on which VANILLA SKY is based! Cesar is a handsome playboy who has it all - until he falls for the beautiful Sofia (Penelope Cruz), and a jealous ex-girlfriend tries to kill him in a car accident that leaves him horribly disfigured. His perfect life turns into a nightmare as he suffers from flashbacks and visions and he starts to confuse reality with dreams.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A film with enough intellectual meat on its stylish bones to give more adventurous moviegoers something to chew on afterward.
Fresh: Amenabar may drop the ball with a surprise happy ending, but the real shock is that when Cesar finally opens his eyes, you feel he's earned it.
Rotten: The cumbersome, fantastical plot twists of its last 40 minutes render the whole thing unfathomable.
Fresh: While it will not get the kind of wide release necessary to make a big splash in this country, those who see it will not quickly forget the experience.
This movie is a duplicate of Vanilla Sky...what's up with that???
This is the movie Vanilla Sky was a remake of.
Much better film than Vanilla sky, as the originals often are. IN fact, the only interesting thing I found with Vanilla Sky was that Ms. Cruz decided to do both films.
THIS IS NO COPY!!!
THIS IS NO COPY OF ANYTHING. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL IN WHICH VANILLA SKY IS BASED ON. THIS IS A FABULOUS FILM, MUCH BETTER THAN VANILLA SKY. THE ACTORS ARE GREAT, THE STORY KEEPS YOU GUESSING THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MOVIE. I RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE THAT LOVES MOVIES, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
