Le Scaphandre et le papillon  (the diving bell and the butterfly)

The 2007 film Le Scaphandre et le Papillon is based in the true story of publicist Jean-Dominique Bauby who suffers a stroke and has to live with an almost totally paralyzed body apart from his left eyelid.

Through this, Bauby is able to develop a remarkable form of communication with the outside world whereby he blinks on the appropriate letter as Henriette, his speech therapist, reads aloud the alphabet. Although frustrating at start, he learns to communicate effectively but slowly using this method, so much so that with the help of Claude, a full time translator, he decides on the monumental and seemingly impossible task to keep to his pre-injury commitment of writing a book.

The result is a feat of heroism. Here is the life force at its most insistent, lashing out against fate with stubborn resolve. We are left with the reflection that human consciousness is the great miracle of evolution, and all the rest (sight, sound, taste, hearing, smell, touch) are simply a toolbox that consciousness has supplied for itself.

The film was nominated for four Oscars and also won two Golden Globes for ‘Best Motion Picture Director’ and ‘Best Foreign Language Film’.

Join us to see this inspiring French film with English subtitles!
