Editorial Ocho y medio, Libros de cine; The result is a sensationalist film focused only on its marketability. Julia, the lawyer who wants to support his cause publicly, and Rosa, a neighbour from the village, who, upon learning his story, will try to persuade him that life is worth living. It is also equally clear that not everyone has the same capacity for adaptation. The supporting characters are also brilliant.

During this struggle, he meets two women who are to change his life: The film establishes a parallelism between quadriplegia and euthanasia. It is an apology of euthanasia, since it is about a person who is not terminally ill. A different view six years caoga the Academy Award. The most dramatic consequences, quadriplegia, result from high cervical injuries.

There are no counterarguments provided by complementary stories of other people who live cheerfully despite being quadriplegic; testimonies that, by providing a broader view of the issue, would enrich the development of the line of thought defended by the scriptwriters and the director in the plot. However, at 25, a miscalculated dive from the rocks along the coast of his native Galicia results in a cervical injury after which he is only able to move his head.

At times, the Galician accent becomes too broad, making it difficult to understand the dialogues. The most outstanding differences among patients with spinal cord injuries are observed at this stage, since the resulting limitations depend on the level at which the injury takes place.


An insignificant distance for any human being. However, the association between quadriplegia and the desire for euthanasia or a dignified death, an association that is implicit in the film, can neither be generalized about, and nor does it even reach significant levels of frequency among people with high spinal cord injury.

The judges are portrayed as lacking humanity, with gloomy features and solid arguments that refuse to see his point of view: So, vaiga right, and I understand that other caiha might take offence when I say that life like this is not worth it, but I am not judging anyone, am I?

The different characters that appear in the film represent a rammon universe of attitudes when faced by the onset of an unexpected disability, with their different reactions, feelings, behaviours and processes of adaptation, while at the same time weaving a natural support network to cope with daily life.

Euthanasia, dignified death, living without dignity, the right to die, freedom of choice, etc. This association, unjustified and applicable only to certain cases, is what is unfair, unjustifiable, and uncalled-for, stirring the anger of the large group of people with spinal cord injury who, instead of attitudes of defeat, resignation, submission, and giving in, choose attitudes of confrontation, adaptation, self-improvement and rehabilitation, thus fighting for a life of independence and quality.

As has been said among the associations of people with spinal cord injury, to be the focus of the media, to appear cziga television or in the newspapers, in order to have a film made about you, you must be prepared to commit suicide.

Daiga involves the need for help, environmental adaptation, and technical support. Javier Bardem plays the role of a quadriplegic in a very convincing and masterly way, in such a way that this role has led him to being considered one of the best Spanish actors of the times.

To sum upthere is little to object to.

The cast, which is excellent, is what saves the film. Am I not a slave too?

The prizes awarded support its cinematographic qualities. It shows a high cervical spinal cord injury leading to quadriplegia as the consequence of an ill-fated dive. However, this explanation might not be appropriate, since there are many people whose unexpected spinal cord injuries took place around that time or even before, and sam;edro have chosen paths of adaptation that have led them to high degrees of independence, autonomy, and quality faiga life.


An analysis of the characters in the film is made; both popular and cinematographic reviews of it are discussed, and the image it conveys of disability is analyzed. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo.

However, thousands of others choose their own happiness and thus contribute to the happiness of those around them. In spite of this, it does not succeed in completely reaching the viewer, possibly due to the mediocrity of its stylistic resources and its dull and superficial plot: His world is reduced to his room where he has contact with Julia, his lawyer who suffers from CADASILand with Rosa, a neighbour who tries to convince him of how interesting life might be.

How do you think Ramoh felt when I had to leave the sea to come here, to get some kind of money out of this crappy piece of land, to be with you: So, why should he want to die? Some words of criticism from viewers: He refuses to use a wheelchair, seeing it as a symbol of his limited freedom.

This type of accident and its subsequent injury are one of the most daiga causes of unexpected spinal chord injuries related to sports.

His rejection of resources that might improve the quality of life of people with quadriplegia technical means, suitable environmental means, etc.

Owing to his disability, he has been bedridden for 28 years.
