The camera angle the i though really was very good was the part when it shows Ramon dreaming that he could get up and walk. This shows his longingness to walk and his love for Julia. It is shot is such a way that i think Ramon feels like what i would feel like if i drept about flying. The camera follows him to the beach and then up to a close up of him and Julia and then they kiss it is a very powerful part of the movie.
These two stories are very similar. They both have the main charecter in both suffered from locked in syndrome. They are both really depresing and sad. I think that Bauby is a little more under control in the way that he just accepts the way he is and does not think about killing himself all the time. Both of them are loved by everyone around them even when they cant move. Bauby i feel is a stronger person because when he got reminded of what he looked like he started to laugh but when the guy in the sea inside got reminded of himself he through a fit.
My general reaction to the sea inside was that this is a very strong film. The actors in this film are so good i almost though i was watching a documentary. The main charecter is a quadrapalegic and has been for some time. he is very unhappy with his life and wishes to die. This is very sad to me because there is nothing he can do about his life fro good or for worse. A man that is so dependent on others he cant even roll on his side without the help of others around him. this movie is a little depressing because at the end he finnally gets someone to help him kill himself ever when no body in his family wants him to.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was a very inspireing book. Bauby had to have been a very strong man to have the strengh to blink this whole book and blink it so well. His ablity to make every thing so vivid and interesting is quite an amazing feat for a paralyzed victim to have accomplished.
