Living is Easy With Eyes Closed: David Trueba’s film is pleasurable enough, but ultimately it’s also rather bland and excessively neat. The plot is almost insufficient, as the focus are on the characters; however, the characters also feel undeveloped and somewhat uninteresting. Also, not much is told about the world where they live in. The cast is solid and have good chemistry, particularly Natalia de Molina and Javier Cámara, but they are not given much to do. The film looks good and convincingly portrays its time period, but it’s unremarkable visually, much like the whole.
