Her twin sister Sara shares the same affliction and has recently undergone an unsuccessful operation to reverse her transition into blindness. When Julia learns of her sister's death by suicide, she refuses to believe the police report.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tense psychological thriller 5 Jun 2011
By GEH
Format:DVD
I saw this last night after it being made "Film of the Week" on BBC's Kermode & Mayo film review. It's a film that plays on some of our simplest fears - fear of the dark and fear of the unknown. And whilst I guessed what would happen in quite a few areas, there was one point in the film when I was completely engrossed in Julia's anxiety - like her, I didn't know who to trust and I doubted everything I suspected.

For me, the best thrillers are the ones that create atmosphere and this film does it brilliantly. I felt very uneasy and tense for a large part of it. Belén Rueda was great as Julia and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her ("The Orphanage" is now definitely on my 'to see' list). Just a slight warning if you're squeamish about eyes, there's one scene you might want to avoid, but don't let that put you off the rest of the film!

So why not 5 stars? A few things annoyed me - there's no way Julia would be allowed to stay in that house on her own after everything that happened and then there was the rusty, dark community centre (which, whilst visually and atmospherically great, was not very believable). BUT I have to agree with Mark Kermode's comment on the film: "If you can give me one of these every now and then - a proper, inventive psychological... that is put together with craftsman-like care and attention - that will keep me going."

5.0 out of 5 stars Absence is a man of fear 26 Aug 2011
By Ben
Format:DVD
Julia's twin sister killed herself but there is something quite not right. Is there really someone who caused it or is it just her imagination running wild? When Julia and her husband, Isaac, go to her sister's home to prepare the funeral for Sara, she can feel it too. Everybody around her does not see what Julia's eyes see. Yes, there is evil but is it a ghost? a presence? an unknown something?

This chiller from Spain is superbly crafted and the eerie ambiance makes this a scary affair for me. The director really knows how to play a lot of tricks with your mind, you will never know what is the cause of all of this until near the end of this atmospheric thriller. Belén Rueda who played Julia and her twin sister Sara is so magnificent in her double roles.

Don't let the subtitles ruin the fun in watching this Spanish flick. Make sure you dim the lights and open your eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy but Amazing! 27 Jan 2012
By Amy
Format:Blu-ray
The story is tense and keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way till its climatic conclusion. It is well filmed, adding more tension and excitement to a fantastic story line.
I would recommend this film. It is well worth the money, but it's best watched with the lights on!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good reviews - read with caution 23 July 2014
By echo
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Had my misgivings soon after beginning to watch this Spanish film (have watched many excellent Spanish films & have no problem with subtitles). The plot soon deteriorated into rubbish with the acting following closely behind. I must have been very stuck for something to do as I watched this twaddle to the ridiculous end. Another waste of time and money. I no longer read good reviews of films( or books) but go straight to the lowest review rating. If it seems reasonable I base decision to watch/ read on that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric, tense and terrifying thriller 30 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've never known a horror film display a genuinely moving love story, whilst simultaneously developing suspense, anticipation, fear and scares throughout (I jumped out of my seat on numerous occasions). A superb performance from Belén Rueda, as well as from the supporting cast combined with inventive direction and camera work make this a thoroughly enjoyable and truly frightening film.

One of the things that surprised me most was the use of blank screen for quite a sustained period, which in film could be compared to dead air on the radio, yet this was incorporated so skilfully and fittingly, and considering the films narrative, I can't think of anything more suitable and compelling (other than the camera flash scene perhaps). There are many techniques used which put us very much in the position of the heroine by limiting what we can see, as her vision deteriorates so does our perception of the world and the more the film progresses, the less we know or can be certain of and as we doubt her perceptions, so too do we doubt our own. From this premise, our fears escalate and the impact of her physical and psychological traumas truly take hold.

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the film does draw from Hitchcock and in a very positive way, in that less is more and what is concealed from us is what's terrifying because it is left to our imagination and preys on our own fears, encouraged throughout by our compassion for the heroine. Compelled by Belén's marvellous performance depicting the trauma of her condition, together with the cinematic techniques employed to further our sympathies with her predicament, this is an excellent psychological thriller/horror film, imbued with love, fear, loneliness and darkness which will not fail to satisfy. When you don't know where terror lurks is what makes a film all the more terrifying, a premise of which Julia's Eye's is a shining example.

Reasonable film, good pace, not too scary (so suited my wife) and interesting storyline. Could have done with a little more suspense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will keep you jumping all the way through 25 Mar 2014
By Linda
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I love Del Torro's films, and this is no exception. Whilst trying to convince everyone she's not paranoid, Julia has to work alone to unravel the mystery of her sister's apparent suicide. With more twists and turns that I expected, it kept me guessing right to the end. Chilling and scary, I would recommend it. Just make sure you lock the doors before you start watching... and keep the lights on!

It's always worthwhile watching Belen Rueda in anything, but the plot in this film was far too complicated for itself. Worth a viewing but by no means a classic.
