The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Indies in the Awards Mix

Coin: Pathe Pictures financed the approximately $10 million pic and handled sales.

Buzz: “Diving Bell” was warmly received at Cannes, where Miramax snapped up the title. With few films considered a lock for picture, the inventive and moving French-language “Butterfly” could end up among the final five, as could helmer Julian Schnabel in his category. Other major categories could follow if the pic gains greater traction. Supporting thesp Emmanuelle Seigner is receiving some love from bloggers.

Kudos: Schnabel and d.p. Janusz Kaminski won prizes at Cannes.
