THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

SUBMERGED: THE MAKING OF THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY- how Julian Schnabel came to make the film and a behind-the-scenes promo piece of the [production.  They used the real hospital where Jean-Dominique stayed and the director decided to shoot the film in French.

A CINEMATIC VISION-  a look at the cinematography of Janusz Kaminski and how various things were shot

 

also included is an audio commentary with Director Julian Schnabel, but the featurettes and the Charlie Rose interview give enough information about the film that I want to know.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY is interesting to watch and sometimes rising to the life of greatness, but it's inspirational approach sometimes leaves me cold.
