Sea Inside Post 2
Some Similarities The Sea Inside had with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly were that the families showed unconditional love for Ramon and Bauby. The family took care of Ramon all those years, fed him, and loved him very much. In The Diving Bell and the Butterfly Bauby's family kept visiting, kept loving him, and talking to him. Another similarity between The Sea Inside and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly were that both stories ended with the main character writing a book about there situation. I believe that there purpose in life was to share their story with the world. Also after the main characters wrote their books they passed away. Some differences The Sea Inside had with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly were that in the movie The Sea Inside Ramon could actually talk, and write things. In The Diving Bell and the Butterfly the only thing Bauby could move was his left eye to communicate. Another difference between The Sea Inside and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly were that in The Sea Inside Ramon wanted to die so badly because he was just so sick of his living condition, and he was very negative in my opinion. In the Diving Bell and the Butterfly Bauby did not dread life, his purpose was to write his book. Bauby also wasn't very negative about his living condition, and in my opinion Bauby's situation was way worse that Ramon's. In my opinion The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was way more powerful. I believe this because Bauby's situation was just so sad. Bauby had a family, he had a wife and two kids. Bauby was also older, and his accident just happened so suddenly. To have everything taken away from you like that is awful, and especially when you can't even touch your kids or wife anymore. Bauby had it very bad, he could barely communicate at all, and what was very sad to me was when he saw himself in the mirror. Bauby saw how ugly he was, and I'm sure that broke his heart.
