  1. Regina's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  2. Laura G.'s rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    '...all the women I could never love, all the missed opportunities...' killed me.

  3. SebastianKorteweg's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    This is why film is such an impeccable medium when it comes to speaking to our senses. The most intense first-person account of locked-in syndrome ever put to celluloid, and at the same time a wonderful celebration of life in its fullest.

  4. NCMBianchi's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    [More like 3.5] Amazing acting by Amalric - always devoted to thorough character playing - in a touching story.

  5. lou.'s rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Vraiment poignant. J'ai beaucoup pleuré: tout d'un coup je me suis souvenu parce que je ne pouvais pas finir le livre, très très douloureux et émouvant.

  6. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Non fosse per buona parte della seconda metà sarebbe ☆ e mezzo.

  7. askapsaskis's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    This life is largely imagined.

  8. Stefano Campagna's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  9. JoAnne Voightlander's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    I probably would've liked this more if I hadn't read the book first. The real Mr. Bauby didn't even try to be "inspiration porn"; he expressed how he really felt and thought, writing some things that readers have indignantly declared "ungrateful", "smug", "self-obsessed", etc. Because a guy whose life is all but over needs to worry about appearances, yes. The movie tries to be more uplifting than the book. Oh well.

  10. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Based on the true story of a man who was paralyzed by a stroke and wrote an entire book through the blinking of his left eye. The majority of the film is shot from his eye’s perspective which makes for a pretty surreal experience, and enhances the feeling that you are experiencing somebody else’s life for a brief moment.

  11. Diana Vaz's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Beautiful cinematography.

  12. Balthaz21's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  13. Eli Almario's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  14. hemachandra's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    4.5 Max von Sydow made me cry

  15. Myles's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    A stylish, heartfelt exploration of stasis and moving forward. Julian Schnabel is a frivolous asshole, but this is one of my favorites.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Réelle performance d'acteur de Mathieu Amalric, qui a dû se désinvestir de toutes les habitudes et fonctionnalités d’une personne à la normative mobilité, mais aussi lumineuse présence de Marie-Josée Croze, parfaite dans son ingrat rôle d'orthophoniste infiniment dévouée. Puis quelques trouvailles scénaristiques bienvenues et parfaitement intégrées dans le processus mental du personnage principal. www.cinefiches.com

  17. Kuklinski's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Brillante, para reflexionar sobre nuestros problemas.

  18. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

  19. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Such a brilliantly unique film with a brilliant, funny central performance. Genuine humanity on display here.

  20. Silvoieski's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    This film doesn't expose the deteorization or the progressive death of the main character. No. we can see through a left eye the pure social reconciliation . This film shows the life of pleasure and the life of reflection. In my opinion he didn't dive, he flew.

  21. yakimo's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    very first love to movies, a movie that made me watch moviees again and again...

  22. elif jazel's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    I was amazed by the beginning of the film: a pov shot of a man awakening from a coma. usually pov shots are boring and you feel like stuck in a little place but they can also be amazing when they are well done. and this movie is a good example for pov! very good acting! I liked the camera angles and the movements a lot! internal thoughts was great! flashbacks were enough.

  23. Cheval Tatin's rating of the film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    Mathieu Amalric. Mathieu Amalric. Mathieu Amalric. 12 years of wet dreams. Did I mention that he's a great actor?
