Sea Inside Post 3
It seems the in The Sea Inside the director loved to use close ups to create intimacy with the characters and show the deep emotions during certain situations. Julia was puzzled in one scene why Ramon would want to die even though he could still live his life out. The director uses a close up on Julia’s face when Ramon is explaining to her why he wants to die. This particular shot shows emotion on Julia that indicates her somber feeling. A particularly confusing part of the film is when Ramon dreams of flying to the sea where he finds his Julia. When he arrives Julia is drawing nearer and nearer to him to a point where they find each other inches away. The director takes advantage of this time to give emotions of the love between Julia and Ramon with a close up of their lips as they begin kissing on the beach. Finally the use of the close up is used in the most emotional section of the film when Ramon gives his final speech. Clearly the use of the close up to create deep emotional connections between the characters in the movie and the audience.
