I really would like to see many of you at the last movie night of the year, which is going to take place on Monday 05/04/09 at 7.30pm in WLT 235.
The movie I picked up is ‘Le scaphandre et le papillon’ (‘The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’) and it was made in 2007 by Julian Schnabel.
It relates the real story of a French journalist, Jean-Dominique Bauby, who lapsed into coma after a massive stroke. He eventually woke up but was suffering from a condition called locked-in syndrome: his body became physically paralyzed but he found a way to communicate through movements of his right eye and was therefore able to write a book, ‘Le scaphandre et le papillon’, published in 1997.
Here is the trailer:
Good luck for your finals and see you on Monday!
