le scaphandre et le papillon

In 1997 I lived in France, and I read Jean-Dominique Bauby's book Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon when it was first released. I just became aware of its film adaptation from 2007 - and I just saw it tonight. An adaptation that incredibly beautifully painfully resolves the transfer of intonation from the book to the screen.

I know... det gjør vondt - men det betyr ikke at jeg ikke skal se den på nytt på et større lerret!
