Alehandro Amenabara ("Open your eyes", "The Others", "Mar Adentro") pirmā ievērojamā filma ir viena no tām kino lentēm, kuras ilgi nevarēju saņemties noskatīties. Varu paskaidrot, kāpēc. No vienas puses - mani interesē spāņu kino, turklāt vēl Amenabars patiešām augstu kotējas šīs valsts režisoru vidū. No otras - izlasot IMDb anotāciju: "While doing a thesis about violence, Ángela finds a snuff video where a girl is tortured until death. Soon she discovers that the girl was a former student in her faculty", īsti vēlme piedāvāt kādam skatīties šo filmu man neradās. Starp citu - ja nemaldos, to lejuplādēt man piedāvāja Movielens, apgalvojot, ka tā būtu viena no tām erotisku tēmu (bet visticamāk - ne skatu) piesātinātajām drāmām, kas man pēdējā laikā ir viens no iecienītākajiem kino žanriem.

Abre Los Ojos

6.0
This is the first film of the dilogy which gave us "Vanilla Sky". Actually, this isn`t the first part but the first version of Vanilla Sky done by some Spanish director. What`s weird about this film that there`s Penelope Cruz in the same role she also played in the film with Cruise. To be honest, there`s not very much difference between the films - maybe in this one the main hero`s face is ruined more than in the other one, but apart from that it`s still the same film with the same ideas. Oh, I forgot that there`s nothing from Monet in here (or was it the other guy - Manet? I`m not sure).

Mar Adentro

9.0
Alejandro Amenabar was the director of a film that got one of the first records on my factoid - "Open your eyes". But "Mar Adentro", his latest, brought him even more acclaim than that film. He even got an Oscar for the best foreign film. Ramob Sampedro is a man who`s been paralysed for 28 years and who wants to have a right to die, but Spanish law doesn`t give him such a right. Now he`s found a lawyer woman named Julia that is also suffering from a disease that will kill her, thinking that she might help him. A weird love story starts between the paralysed man and the insultic woman. Some sort of Romeo and Julia. Then there`s Rosa, a simple working class woman that wants to convince Ramon that he needs to live. But Ramon says that the woman that loves him will help him die. Which one will it be - Rosa or Julia? The one that could die with him together or the one that will live on after his passing? The film isn`t only about whether it`s right to die if you want to, but about what`s worth in life and what isn`t. It`s so sad it makes you cry, and at the same time it`s so uplifting that you can smile through your silly tears.

The Others

7
Alehandro Amenabara filma "Citi" ir baiss stāsts par sievieti un viņas diviem bērniem, kas dzīvo spokainā mājā Džērsijas salā neilgi pēc Otrā pasaules kara beigām. Kamēr filmas noskaņa tev kā skatītājam dzen šermuļus pār kauliem, tās iekšējās loģikas trūkums un pretrunas man vismaz sagādāja vēl vairāk nepatīkamu mirkļu kā baisās priekšnojautas.
