Critic Reviews for Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

  • "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.

  • It's a project that could easily be weighed down with nostalgia or over-determination, but there's a generosity and humour about the performances and the direction that keep the film light and buoyant.

  • Ultimately good-hearted and gracefully handled enough to transcend the leisurely slightness of its material.

  • The actors help to bring this engaging tale to life.

  • 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.

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.
