The Sea Inside




Again I chose a movie about which I knew nothing. Again it was the true story of a paralyzed man, in this case one who chose to die, against the wishes of his government. The movie is a moving statement about those who are held hostage in helpless bodies.

It is in Galician, a dialect of Spanish. The scenes of flying to the sea are glorious.

I too found this movie quite moving. Typical of me, I cried when he died/killed himself. And yet I fully understood why he could not continue to live as he was.
