The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

This is an extraordinary film. It documents the daily life and imaginative wanderings of Jean-Dominique Bauby who is literally "locked in" his own body, unable to move or speak, his communication limited to the blinking of one eye. With incredible spirit he dictates, letter by letter, blink by blink, his book The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, on which the film is directly based.
Watch it. You won't think of your life the same after seeing it.
