Le scaphandre et le papillon (2007)
Must see for all.......difficult but amazing insight.
"The true story of Elle editor Jean-Dominique Bauby who suffers a stroke and has to live with an almost totally paralyzed body; only his left eye isn't paralyzed." This is an amazing piece of cinematic art & direction conveying the almost impossible -- what a patient experiences in "locked-in-syndrome". This is not an ordinary stroke as we learn in the movie. The viewer is taken on a visual/visceral experience of this phenomenon in such an insightful manner that some may find the journey overwhelming. We have the author, Bauby, himself, to thank for his inspiration to "tell" his story against impossible odds, and the director who was able to get inside the story and make it manifest on the screen in a truly remarkable way. It should become requisite viewing for all medical and paramedical professionals.
I highly recommend this film........
The Bucket List (2007)
GREAT film; great actors......a must see.......
Here is another AMAZING piece of art --- the art lies in the timing & presentation of sensitive material which in other less able hands may have gone off the rails and lost it's way. The sheer poignancy of the subject matter which is part & parcel of the human condition, and by consequence their off spring, creates a challenge in the presentation. It could have easily slipped into trite clichés, but nothing of the sort.
You will laugh 'til it hurts, and cry for the same reason.
It takes an unpalatable scenario, and brings us face to face with our own mortality --- waiting for each of us around the proverbial "next corner" . It has the potential to awaken those sleeping among us; frittering away their lives, and cautions us not to waste our years. It challenges each one of us to experience at least some of our dreams. Yes, however, fanciful is the travelogue, the message to seek our bliss should not be missed. Some of the photo ops on their journey give us great glimpses of some of the wonders of the world.
Perhaps you will make your own "Bucket List". :)
