Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The ( Scaphandre et le papillon, Le ) 
Best movie of the year so far
4/4 stars

About 10 years ago I read the story of former Elle editor Jean-Dominique Bauby who dictated his biography by blinking his eye, because he was otherwise completetly paralyzed.

I was ecstatic when I heard the movie was coming out. But the telling of the story completely exceeded my expectations, especially through the camerawork (as written in by the screenwriter).

Emmanuelle Seigner was outstanding as the mother of his children. Max von Sydow was incredibly moving as his father (Papinou). I thought that he deserved an Oscar or a Cesar at least. Most likely his performance will go by unnoticed.

It is sad that this wasn't France's entry for the Academy's Best Foreign Language Film category. Grr. Well, so far it's my #1 movie for the year. I was thinking that it would probably be top 3 while I was watching the film. But I haven't been moved by anything else as much, so Diving Bell wins out :) :) :)
