Post 2 for The Sea Inside
The Sea Inside and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly were very similar. In both, the main characters were quadriplegics. They both suffered a condition that they hated dearly. What made them different was the fact that one wanted to die and the other lived it out until the end. The Diving bell was about a man telling his story and telling people what it's like. Where as The Sea Inside was about a man fighting for the right to die. They both expressed the struggles they went through and hard times they had to endure. Overall, I would say the Diving bell was more powerful, all because of the fact there was more things you had to interpret. Such as hidden meanings, with all the dreams. You had to think about what the author was trying to say to you. They were both very sad and both very compelling, but in The Sea Inside there wasn't as much description. But i guess thats because it's a movie. They both made me thinka bout how lucky I am to not have a serious condition like that.
