Oxide Pang Chun,
The violinist Sydney Wells has been blind since she was five years old due to an accident. She submits to a surgery of cornea transplantation to recover her vision, and while recovering from the operation, she realizes that she's having strange visions. With the support of Dr. Paul Faulkner, Sidney finds who the donor of her eyes and begins a journey to find out the truth behind her visions. Written by
Genesis Rojas, Caracas, Venezuela.
During the scene where Dr. Faulkner gives Sydney her donor's information, we can see the distance between the taxi and a Fedex Kinko's office change. As the taxi is taking off, the Fedex office starts to look more distant. When Faulkner stops the taxi abruptly and makes Sydney get off it, the distance between the taxi and Fedex has shrunk considerably. This implies that the taxi went forward and then backward, when it was clearly just going forward. See more »

Oh, shit. Thanks. I didn't see that.
Neither did I.

People say seeing is believing, but for me, that's not entirely true. I lost my sight when I was five years old. Those memories of what I have seen have faded so much that I doubt I'd even recognize myself anymore. Now I see using my other senses. I can smell the rain before it drops, but I can't watch it fall. I can feel the sun on my face, but I can't see it rise...

I enjoyed The Eye. I took my 13 year old and one of his friends to see this movie. I don't believe it was gory enough for their age group. I recently saw the original Japanese version on t.v. The Japanese version is better but this was a good movie. Lots of gotcha moments without the over done gore. The acting was good. Would have been nice to see the romantic aspect played up more between Alba's character and the the doctor. The Eye stayed very true to the original story line but with fresh interpretations. If you liked The Grudge you will like this movie as well. But again, I feel that the Japanese versions are better. Just a good all round scary movie. I will watch it again when it comes out on DVD.
