Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. It establishes a moving, but not very thought-provoking, atmosphere, following the typical format of American films, where the director seeks emotional involvement of viewers. The performance caigq the both protagonist and the supporting actors is synergic and imbues the issue addressed with a certain sobriety.

At times, the Galician accent becomes too broad, making it difficult to understand the dialogues. 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.
