Correcto, pero para mí la versión en inglés sería:

"your life flashes in front of your eyes"

Right?

Not at all. The BNC records 15 instances of 'before your eyes' and none of 'in front of your eyes'. For reasons I can't explain (Spanish wine again) the former sounds normal and correct, and the latter sounds wrong.

Really the you are saying there is Tu vida destello antes de tus ojos, but this doesn't make sense, therefore you can say tu vida pasa frente mis ojos this phrase is most common than the last phrase.

By the way, have you tried Chilean wines?
