When I first saw this movie on the IFC channel, I was completely engrossed in the plot. At first, I was intrigued to see Penelope Cruz act in her native Spanish, but was quickly swept away in a well-written and produced movie that extends beyond any movie I had seen before. It is an excellent example of how good Spanish cinema really is. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys strange plot twists and surprise endings. The US remake is to be released this month under the title Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. Hopefully, it will be as good as the original and not be just another contrite, polished Hollywood production.

Review Films of this intelligence, audacity, and complexity come along so rarely that it's mandatory to cry out their arrival... It is a piece of cinema that will have viewers guessing and questioning from beginning to end... The performance of the two leads are extraordinary.
