There are no counterarguments provided by complementary stories of other people who live cheerfully despite being quadriplegic; testimonies that, by providing a broader view of the issue, would enrich the development of the line of thought defended by the scriptwriters and the director in the plot.

In this respect she comments: It is a successful piece of cinematographic art, with an excellent screenplay and a praiseworthy performance. The film establishes a parallelism between quadriplegia and euthanasia.

An analysis of the characters in the film is made; both popular and cinematographic reviews of it are discussed, and the image it conveys of disability is analyzed. His stubbornness against attachment to life is obsessive, and his desire to die becomes pathological. This association, unjustified and applicable only to certain cases, is what is unfair, unjustifiable, and uncalled-for, stirring the anger of the large group of people with spinal cord injury who, instead of attitudes of defeat, resignation, submission, and giving in, choose attitudes of confrontation, adaptation, self-improvement and rehabilitation, thus fighting for a life of independence and quality.

I cuanxo the best for him; everybody in the household wants the best for him.

The cast, which is excellent, is what saves the film. The most outstanding differences among patients with spinal cord injuries are observed at this stage, since the resulting limitations depend on the level at which the injury takes place.
