Movie Info

A woman invites a total stranger to join her on a vacation to a remote paradise in this romantic drama from director Ernesto Contreras. Marina has won a trip to Playa Salamandra, but the sad fact remains that the disheartened prizewinner has no one with whom to share her good fortune. Feeling that it would be better to explore paradise in the company of a stranger that with no one at all, Marina invites an unfamiliar man named Victor to accompany her on the upcoming trip. In the days that follow Marina and Victor will discover that an emotional connection is essential to fueling romance, and that the setting love blooms in is simply a matter of fate. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for Párpados Azules (Blue Eyelids)

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

Ably mounted and shot, 'Blue Eyelids' is a welcome cliché-free zone, often touching and occasionally very funny, played out in a minor register suitable for the lives it describes.

Time Out
Top Critic

A semidrama always on the verge of reaching for laughs, but never grasping them.

Top Critic

There have been countless films about ordinary, lonely people finding love, but few of them can have had characters quite as unassertive and nondescript as the couple featured in this Mexican comic drama.

Sunday Times (UK)

There are touching moments, a developing tenderness, some shuffling truths here and there, but not enough to make these marginal figures demand the attention the film's director thinks they deserve.

Observer [UK]

The intelligent script and skilful central performances make for a gently compelling romance.

Empire Magazine

A beautifully made film about two people with no ability to relate to each other, attempting to do just that.

Audience Reviews for Párpados Azules (Blue Eyelids)


Mexican romantic comedy about two quiet lonely boring people who decide to date to fill the void. Horribly realistic and pretty entertaining too ... if you've ever been on a date for any other reason than actually liking the person, you'll empathize with the awkwardness of having absolutely nothing to talk about.

Super Reviewer

An off-beat romantic comedy, if you dare to laugh. The film is supported entirely by it's two lead actors, so you can either love it or hate it depending on how much you let yourself be carried away by them.
