After I watched this film I felt that it was inappropriate for school. I believe that this issue should not be discussed so informally on a blog or should be approached in a learning environment but i will answer anyway.
The Sea Inside is a disturbing film. Ramon's request for assisted suicide is odd. There is evidence for both sides of this opinion. Ramon's point of view is that he will not burden his family anymore. Ramon's family's point of view is that he is depressed and they don't want to loose him. He is making their family look bad from this incident. I believe his friends who agreed to help him were only blinded by a man's last wishes to actually notice the actions he was taking.
