Mindblowing Thriller
3 June 2013 | by pradiptadas1982See all my reviews

Watched "Julia's Eyes" Original Title-(Los Ojos de Julia)-

I got this movie in my collection from one of my Friend's collection. It's a ? Spanish Movie which I got with English subtitles. When yesterday I selected this movie to watch I had no idea what kind of movie it was and so I also had no expectations from it. Just knew that it's a movie of different language, different genre so may be there would be something new but when the Movie started I just jumped out from my chair. It was really a spine chilling moment which grabbed my whole attention towards the movie and this attention remained as such throughout the movie. Every Scene, short dialogues, murder clues, every drama I was just enjoying by watching repeatedly with the help of the rewind button of my laptop.

The movie started with the mysterious death of Sara. She was found hanging in the basement of her own house where she lived alone. She was blind due to a degenerative disease of her eyes. Police tried to loosening the case thinking that she was committed suicide because of loneliness and depression but her twin sister Julia, who was also suffering from the same degenerative disease in her eyes and rapidly deteriorating her sights didn't believe that it was a suicide. While doing her own way of searching the mystery of her sister's death Julia came to know that Sara was undergone a surgery on her eyes with the hope of regaining her sight. Also she found some clues of a mysterious boyfriend of Sara. Simultaneously with the run someone always tried to swipe away all the data, clues and even murdered the persons who knew anything about the case.

The first one hour was so intense, so twists n turns that one could not made an idea in which way the movie was going. Last 30 mins there was also a brilliant Cat- Mouse duel between Julia and the murderer.

After watching the movie I read from the internet that it was the same team- actress (Belen Rueda), producer (Guillermo Del Toro), musician (Fernando Velazquez), cameraman (Oscar Faura) - who made "Orphanage" previously. The same team again delivered an Intelligent, Tight gripped, spine chilling thriller which is original in its nature. Regarding acting everyone was brilliant. Belen Rueda was in a dual role in this movie (Sara n Julia). She was just terrifying throughout the movie. You can just watch this movie only for her acting if you keep every other things apart. Cinematography was brilliant in every part. Script writing, direction, technique with playing light n shadow just compel you to tighten your sit belt throughout the movie.

On a whole Guillermo Del Toro was again delivered a movie which was surprisingly good and taught everyone what the definition of a thriller is.

A MUST SEE for every thriller movie lovers.
