Directed by Julian Schnabel, the visually stunning film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly tells the remarkable true story of how a man who had it all finds it within himself to carry on when all seems truly lost. Winner of a host of awards, including the Director's Award at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and the BAFTA Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is released to buy and rent on DVD on 9th June 2008 from Pathé Distribution Ltd.

Through a mesmerising blast of colour, beauty and humour, Schnabel (Basquiat, Before Night Falls) tells the story of Jean-Dominique Bauby (Mathieu Amalric, Quantum of Solace), the charismatic editor of French Elle and father of two, who was renowned for his sense of humour and style. Jean-Do's world is plunged into the depths of catastrophe when a sudden stroke leaves him in a life-altered state. Struck by 'locked-in syndrome', he is almost totally paralysed but is reborn through his left eye, the one body part which retains movement.

Faced with a situation that at first appears hopeless, Jean-Do uses enormous courage and determination, and most of all his soaring imagination, to escape from his trap and achieve a new life without boundaries. Tapping into the limitlessness of his memories, fantasies, wit and wishes, he finds a way to race through his experiences of wonder and grief, sex and love, fatherhood and childhood, absurdity and ecstasy - and touches the very essence of what it means to be human.

Based on one of the emotionally exhilarating bestsellers ever written, the film was adapted by Academy Award® winning screenwriter Ronald Harwood (The Pianist). The DVD includes a full English dubbed version of the film with the original cast, and is packed with special features including an audio commentary by and interview with Julian Schnabel, plus two featurettes.
