Movie: The Diving Bell And The Butterfly

Sunday we watched "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly". The French movie is the true story of a man who, after suffering a stroke, is completely paralyzed except for his left eye. The speech therapist working with him comes up with a system where she says the alphabet and he blinks when she reaches the correct letter. Using this method he dictates the story of his ordeal.

When the movie was over, all I could think was: "Why didn't they teach him Morse Code?"
