Grandeur in the sadness

Author: Adrian Bailey ( from Birmingham, England
25 March 2007

One of the best short films I've ever seen. The subject is unique: I don't think anyone else has ever written a book by blinking an eyelid, and Bauby's story is remarkable. And it is fitting that a famous and good director like Beineix set out to chronicle Bauby's last weeks on earth. He takes full advantage of the atmosphere inside and outside the hospital to generate a quite surprising level of intensity. I found the film profoundly moving, and many of the students I showed it to were affected too.

It would be great if it was made more available, but when or how that will happen, I don't know.
