romaniantimes.at

The mother of a 24-year-old student says her daughter committed suicide after she watched the movie Avatar, the daily Adevarul has reported.

Maria Petrica, from Constanta in southern Romania, says her daughter Ioana Alexandra Petrica was depressed after breaking up with her boyfriend last year and the movie only made her more depressed. The woman blames the movie for her daughter’s suicide.

The 24-year-old student committed suicide by hanging herself in her rented apartment in Cluj, where she was studying veterinary medicine.

Recent articles have mentioned that US psychologists have warned about depression caused by Avatar, which depicts an ideal world impossible to create on Earth.

CNN has reported that some people say they've experienced depression –and even had suicidal thoughts-- after watching the movie.
