Has anyone seen this movie? I watched it last week and it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The plot, taken from IMDB (without spoilers):

Life story of Spaniard Ramón Sampedro, who fought a 30-year campaign to win the right to end his life with dignity. Film explores Ramón's relationships with two women: Julia, a lawyer who supports his cause, and Rosa, a local woman who wants to convince him that life is worth living. Through the gift of his love, these two women are inspired to accomplish things they never previously thought possible. Despite his wish to die, Ramón taught everyone he encountered the meaning, value and preciousness of life. Though he could not move himself, he had an uncanny ability to move others.
I have never cried in a movie before but this movie changed it. Absolutely touching... I was crying half the time...

Anwyays, highly recommended!

A friend of mine thought it was really great too. I thought it was good, but overrated. It was kind of cliched. Sort of a tuesdays with morrie feel to it, in a bad way, at times.
