The Diving Bell and the Butterfly


What would you do if you cannot speak, cannot move, cannot feel, the only thing you are capable of doing is blink, and think?

Enter The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

I was searching for the best word to summarize this movie. Beautiful. Inspiring. Touching.

Then I found it.


It was an extraordinary story and an extraordinary cinematic experience.

Do yourself a favor, see this movie, and celebrate the even more extraordinary, the human spirit.

    i don’t know, i always feel some movies must be seen in theater for one to fully experience the emotions and the effect… this one fits in the category i think.

    That said, you may not be able to find a theater in your neighborhood that plays it (there are only a few in NY). It’s limited release and it’s…, well, French.

  7. **********A LITTLE SPOILER PEOPLE****************

    i just saw the movie this afternoon…it is absolutely fantastic…i love how in the process of recovering, he gave up self pity and started caring for other people in his life…the cinematography is superb…in the end the shots were played in reverse order and i was sitting there amazed by this thing called life…there is this other movie “sea inside”, pratically exploring the same situation but ended darker but also with dignity in the end…it is very similar material…
