Mar Adentro

Mar Adentro is the Spanish breakthrough movie by Javier Bardem. I have never seen a movie so perfectly showcase the human mood through visuals, thoughts, and their past as this movie.

In the movie, we witness a Ramon who wants to go through euthanization because of his bedridden state and his interactions with his family, who are trying to change his mind.

Mar Adentro is a sad movie. It is a movie where a boy runs endlessly after the car that takes his brother, and a father who thinks “the saddest thing for a father to witness is not to see his son die but rather to see his son want to die.”
