This movie really touches all the dimension of our human existence. Tears and laughter. The lightness of being in perfect balance with the tragedy of human life. Top class actors and a director that only evokes adoration for such a beautiful scenario. The life of a cheerful young man Mario - a successful political career ahead of him- get into a turmoil of emotions when he hears he suffers from Multiple sclerosis. Surrounded by his best friends -one of them a medical doctor- they try to make him understand that life is worth living, no matter in what condition. But the character of Mario is determined: he wants to die when he decides the quality of life is not adequate anymore. Through is political contacts, he succeeds to make euthanasia a law under strict circumstances(second country in Europe)and he is the first one to finally use this law. The end is absolutely touching and impactive. It makes you reflect about your own life and all the things you care for. This is a must-see if you believe in life.
