The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly ★★★★½

This is one of those films that makes use of the medium of film so incredibly well. This is a film that uses filmmaking to its benefit to create an extremely subjective work, one that puts you in the protagonist's position. Perhaps more so than any other film. It takes advantage of the fact that film is a way to connect an audience to someone they may never get the chance to otherwise. A truly emotional journey, and one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. Not so much the depressing journey that I was expecting, but a testament to life and the human spirit. Cinema at its purest form.
