The Sea Inside (Mar Adentro) - Best Foreign Language Film

Saw The Sea Inside (Mar Adentro) last night. Based on a true story. It won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. I originally planned to see Hotel Rwanada, but changed my mind while standing in line when a couple came out of the theater and stopped to chat with the people behind me, who asked what movie they saw.

When the guy said, "The Sea Inside," I turned and asked him how it was. I could tell from the look in his eye and by the way he said, "Excellent," that he was impressed. So I changed my mind. I wasn't planning to see it cuz I knew what it was about and it sounded depressing.

Well, it was depressing. Very depressing. Made me cry. Felt like somebody thru a spear thru my heart and twisted it. It was difficult to watch. I almost got up & walked out several times, especially when he read a poem he'd written, titled: To the son I never had. Oh man, that was sad. But it was also excellent, like the guy said. Easy to see why it won the Oscar. The subtitles didn't even bother me with this film, like they normally do with most foreign films.

Moving would a be a good way to describe it. Definitely makes you appreciate life more, no matter how miserable your situation might be.

I just realized that both Million Dollar Baby, which won the Oscar for Best Picture, and The Sea Inside, which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, both have the same theme. If you plan on seeing either, don't click the next link. But if you're not, or already have, the theme of both is posted HERE. Could this be merely a coincidence?
