The Diving Bell And The Butterfly








Director - Julian Schnabel

Genre - Biography/Drama


Julian Schnabel may very well be the most fascinating American director working today. An accomplished artist before he delved into filmmaking, Schnabel's artistic eye is exceptionally intuitive. Horribly paralyzed by a rare illness, an editor of Elle magazine suddenly finds his life crashing before him. With only a single eye capable of movement, he sets out to write a novel. This powerful film is based on a real story.

4 STARS!
