In the darkest depths of adversity, some men and women are able to reach into the recesses of their characters and find astonishing reserves of strength and courage. Jean-Dominique Bauby, 45, was one of them. Although a stroke in December 1995 left him unable to speak or move or even to eat without assistance, the French journalist, who had been editor in chief of the fashion magazine Elle, wrote a book.

The last thing you expect from a movie about a man who can't move any part of his body save for his left eyelid is for it to be expansive, gorgeous and uplifting, but that's exactly what Julian Schnabel's remarkable "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" turns out to be.

Like dozens of artists making movies these days, Julian Schnabel and Crispin Glover consider themselves artists first, filmmakers second. Both have films out this week, based on similar subjects, which is pretty strange when you think about it. Glover's "It Is Fine. Everything Is Fine!" is based on a story by Steven C. Stewart, who had cerebral palsy and died recently.

In the latest James Bond thriller, "Quantum of Solace," opening today, Agent 007 is pitted against a most unusual adversary. Just don't tell French actor Mathieu Amalric ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") that his character is the bad guy. "Dominic Greene is a great guy," enthused the 43-year-old Amalric, over the phone from London before the film's premiere. "He has a big concern for environmental issues. He wants to help poor people to find their land again. He doesn't understand why Bond is looking for him!"

It's hard to say what's most unexpected about "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," Julian Schnabel's deeply affecting version of the internationally bestselling memoir: that the results are as exceptional as they are or, frankly, that the film has been made at all. Even Daniel Battsek, who acquired it for Miramax, admits he reacted with "fear and trepidation" when he heard the book was being filmed. That's because Jean-Dominique Bauby's 1997 memoir is one of the most unusual of modern times.
