Storyline

Corren los años 40. Una modesta compañía de cineastas españoles abandona la España de Franco trasladándose a la Alemania de Hitler, para realizar una película coproducida entre ambos países. Se trata de un musical de ritmos andaluces protagonizado por la actriz Macarena Granada y dirigido por Blas Fontiveros. El contraste de ideologías entre españoles y alemanes es bastante marcado, y ello no tarda en hacerse notar... Written by Miguel Ángel Díaz González

.....it's still a very enjoyable film.
10 August 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

One may wonder if "La niña de tus ojos" really deserves all the nominations and awards it got. It is not "Belle époque" and there are some obvious clichés but it's still a very enjoyable film. The colours are vibrant and the black humour is piquant though not everyone (especially the English-speaking audience, and Asian audiences not exposed to this sort of humour) may appreciate it. Of course, the fabulous Penelope Cruz will make one overlook whatever faults there are in the film. As usual, she's brilliant. The interplay of dialogue in Spanish, German and Russian is hilarious. Liked it very much.
