Vanilla Sky

Vanilla Sky is a 2001 film starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz. The film was directed by Cameron Crowe[?] and is a close remake of the 1997 Spanish film Abre Los Ojos[?] (Open Your Eyes), which was written by Alejandro Amenábar[?] and Mateo Gil[?].

Early in the film, the principal character mentions Monet's "vanilla sky" in a painting.

Throughout the movie, the skies are all "vanilla" just like in Monet's painting - in fact, a little too like the painting. That is the only giveaway that we're in a fantasy movie[?] about simulated reality, because it plays it straight, about modern life, a successful womanizer who becomes the victim of a Fatal Attraction.

Various people have speculated that the picture depicted in the film is either Monet's "Falaises et Voiliers a Pourville", or even one of the series named variously "Wheat Field and Cypress Trees" / "Yellow Wheat and Cypress" / "Paysage avec Cypres" by Vincent Van Gogh.
