Film: The Sea Inside

Posted on August 9, 2007. Filed under: video |

This is one of the best films I have ever seen:

Two of the most talented figures in contemporary Spanish cinema — actor Javier Bardem and director Alejandro Amenábar — collaborate for this powerful drama, based on a true story.
Movie Review: The Sea Inside

Relationship drama about the life of Ramon Sampedro is pure magic to behold
By LIZ BRAUN – Toronto Sun

PLOT: After the diving accident that
leaves him a quadriplegic, a Galician man fights for the right to die a
dignified death. Regardless of the subject matter, this is a film about
the wonder of being alive.

The Sea Inside is a magical film about many forms of love and
about the energy of life. The movie is based on events in the life of
Ramon Sampedro, a Galician ship mechanic who was paralyzed and
bed-ridden for 30 years. Sampedro is always hopeful — hopeful that
he’ll die soon. He petitions the government to allow him to die with
dignity.
