Euthanasia and Movie Oscars

Mar Adentro is the winner of the oscar for the best foreign movie. It is the real story of the struggle for physician assisted suicide of a spaniard. The movie is highly recommendable to all those who are interested in moral issues within the law. The director does not take an ideological position on the issue, he does not want to defend the 'right to die.' Rather, he confronts the issue with intelligence and tact, presenting, and opposing, the rival arguments for and against.

Will this movie stir anew the debates on physician assisted suicide on both sides of the Atlantic?
