I just watched The Sea Inside. This is not a movie for wimps.
It’s a movie about true love, selfishness and generosity, life and death, bravery and fear, but most of all it’s about freedom.
Based on the profoundly moving true story that captured the world’s attention, The Sea Inside is about Spaniard Ramón Sampedro (played by Oscar® nominee Javier Bardem), who fought a 30-year campaign to win the right to end his life with dignity. The Sea Inside is the story of Ramón’s relationships with two women: Julia (Belén Rueda) a lawyer who supports his cause, and Rosa (Lola Dueñas), a local woman who wants to convince him that life is worth living. Through the gift of his love, these two women are inspired to accomplish things they never previously thought possible. Despite his wish to die, Ramón taught everyone he encountered the meaning, value and preciousness of life. Though he could not move himself, he had an uncanny ability to move others. A truly joyous experience, The Sea Inside celebrates the nature of freedom and love, and the mystery and beauty of life.
It’s in Spanish with subtitles and it’s a true story.
