A Beautiful Journey Inside a Mind (rated 5 stars)

I’m glad that I didn’t know (or didn’t remember) much about The Diving Bell and the Butterfly before I saw it as part of the wonder of the film is in the way that story is told and the surprises along the way. Visually and aurally stunning, it is a story of love and regret that isn’t like anything I’ve ever seen. With great performances throughout and a structure that blends impressions with a loose plot, it made me see, hear and feel the world in a different way after I left the theatre.
