Öffne meine Augen (Take My Eyes, Te doy mis ojos)

During a ten-year marriage, Pilar (Laia Marull) hopes for the best and gives her violent husband Antonio (Luis Tosar) more than one second chance. Finally, at the end of her strength, Pilar leaves in the dark of a winter night, taking her small son Juan, and finds refuge with her younger sister. Things are looking up in her new life with family support and the promise of a new job. Then, Antonio seeks therapy for his problem, and Pilar still dreams of a “normal” life as a couple. This is the classic story of a battered wife, although in this case the wounds are more emotional and psychological than physical. The film is a very intense drama about emotional abuse and lack of respect, which is universal, not limited to macho Spanish men. There are no really violent scenes, but still, emotions run high and watching the film is a challenge, but very much worth the effort due to the strong message and excellent acting. Filmed in Toledo, Spain, this third film by woman director Icíar Bollaín won seven Goyas (the equivalent of an Academy Award in Spain) including best director and best film, as well as best male and female actors. (Isabel Stolte)
