Diving bell and the butterfly DVD,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Diving Bell And The Butterfly [DVD] (DVD)
This was a very moving and inspiring film to watch. I also purchased the book and found it incredible, having watched the film, that some-one so disabled could have the perseverance to tell the world about his life. It wasn't done in a 'feel sorry for me' way, although, of course, you were aware of the terrible sadness of it all, but in an inspiring way.
Probably not everyone would want to watch this. People have different reasons for watching films - maybe sometimes as an escape from reality for a while. This is not one of those films, as it is full of reality. I found it very thought-provoking and humbling.
