Critic Reviews for Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed
"Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed" is subtle in the truest sense, in that it says and suggests much, and does so definitely, but through a minimum of means.
Javier Camara, best known here for his work with Pedro Almodovar, is quite good as the teacher, delivering a performance of real tenderness and depth. In Spanish with subtitles.
Ultimately good-hearted and gracefully handled enough to transcend the leisurely slightness of its material.
An evocative portrait of a time and a place and also a subtly rewarding character study of three ordinary people in search of that extraordinary dream, a taste of freedom.
Smart and delightful ...
Audience Reviews for Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed
A Spanish film set during Beatlemania and how a Spanish teacher sets out to meet the legendary John Lennon. The subtitles I used were not entirely accurate at times but it's a great movie.
Javier Cámara shines as a genuine character, quick to self-depricate and quicker to speak the truth in a movie that was thoroughly satisfying. Living is Easy with Eyes Closed maintains impeccable balance in the themes it covers, and Trueba captures the essence of everyday life in Franco's Spain during a curious period for the country. With Franco on the decline, the West gaining more influence and accessibility for everyday Spaniards, presented in a compelling way with Cámara's angst. Without ever being too overt, Trueba's film projects optimism alongside frustration in a desolate part of rural Spain where the only constant is marginalization. Part road movie, part coming of age, Living is Easy with Eyes Close is entertaining, meaningful, and leaves a lovely taste of the sweet strawberry fields forever in your mouth.
