An excellent movie to see, 17 October 2003
Author: Sonia from Bilbao (Basque Country)

I have recently seen 'Take my eyes' its Spanish title is 'Te doy mis ojos'. It is really a brilliant film, from the beginning to the end of it the whole story attracts the audience attention, mainly because it is a real theme, unfortunately very real for lots of women who suffer pains and bad treatments from their husbands. It should have won the main award in the San Sebastian film festival for the best film, but unfortunately it did not win it. On the other hands, the roles of Laia... and Luis Tosar are wonderful. They won their prizes for their excellent acting. Everybody should see this film, specially men, in order to know how to prevent attacks against women
