Amenabar's best to date is this wonderful script co=written by Mateo Gil that follows a quadrophelgic man's journey in his campaign to die with dignity.Dignity is the key word here in both performances and the filmmaker's lanquage and intent. Bardem is a marvel here well matched by a trio of wonderful actresses namely Rueda, Duenas and Rivera. Wonderful sequences and one feels such empathy for the rich potrayals.
