The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly ★★★½

A-

Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly tells the story of a man with locked-in syndrome, a condition in which he's almost completely paralyzed but can only be able to communicate by blinking an eye. What made this film engagingly captivating from start to finish is how it ables to show all the man's internal thoughts, imagination, memories, and present moments in a powerfully breathtaking manner. It's a beautiful visual poetry that will surely make you reflect on life itself.
