This is the second time that Belén Rueda plays a character named Julia, who coincidentally also suffers from a degenerative disease, after The Sea Inside (2004). See more »

I watched this not knowing exactly what to expect, due to the mixed reviews. While it is slow ISH to burn (at about 2 hrs length), I felt like it offered enough twists and turns along the way to keep you very engaged and on the edge of your seat. I felt like the storyline was quite original, and the movie does a great job of showing how Julia loses her sight over time, with certain scenes done from her point of view. All the actors play their parts very well (rare among most thrillers I feel). I watch a lot of horror/thriller movies, and while this isn't a horror movie, it definitely scared me! Contrary to other reviewers, I actually really enjoyed the ending. It's quite moving and goes very well with the story. Overall, a recommended view for anyone into a good thriller with 2 hrs on their hands.
