It's a big hit around here. Haven't seen it yet.

The movie was beautifully done - cinematography, directing, etc. - but it did feel a bit slow at times. I think the story isn't quite as suited to a visual medium as a verbal one.

I loved the book, and, while the movie was good, very good even, it didn't quite reach the same level.

Aw, Gods. I thought this was beautiful. The cinematography was majestic. Jean-Do is such a charming fellow, it's all so lyrical. I adored it. I enjoyed the slowness. It helped to convey the claustrophobia and frustration.

Oh I agree that it helped convey the claustrophobia and frustration (particularly the first 20 minutes or so). I think my main disappointment in it is that I came away from the book feeling inspired, hopeful. Although there were moments of that in the movie, I ultimately came away from it feeling upset.

Really looking forward to seeing this; I took the liberty of reading 'Le Scaphandre et le Papillon', en Français, because I've been reading a lot of French books lately. I've been doing this to help me write a 8000 word essay in French. Nevertheless, I think I'll get 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly' and read it concurrently with 'Le Scaphandre et le Papillon' and a French-English dictionary, to help me understand the content more before I see the film.

It was quite an extraordinary film, especially in visual terms. You can see the director's background as an artist reflected in the film's stylistic qualities.

Twas amazing. I skimmed through the book after, which was pleasant, but the movie was just brilliant in visual form.
