The Sea Inside Post 3

The scene that affected me most was the scene where Julia is reading some of Ramon's poems and pictures it goes to a flashback of when Ramon jumps and hits his head. When it shows the close up of Ramon's head under the water it is very intimate and sad. It shows the pictures of his growing up and younger years very quickly like life happens fast. Much of the movie was medium shots to close ups and in some cases extreme close ups. I believe that the director wanted us to feel connected to the characters and this is why he used extreme close ups. Another scene that affected me was in the establishing beginning shot and throughout the movie where they would show extreme close ups of the ocean. These shots represented calmness with the waves crashing.
