LE SCAPHANDRE ET LE PAPILLON - THE DIVING-BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY is an autobiographical work about the French journalist, Jean-Dominique Bauby, who in 1995 suffered a devastating stroke that left his mind active, but his body virtually totally paralysed. The film was classified ‘12’ for two scenes of sexualised nudity and one use of moderate language. In both cases the nudity comprised female breast nudity in a sexual context. The BBFC Guidelines at ‘PG’ only permit natural nudity when there is no sexual context. The moderate language in the film comprised a single use of the word ‘dick’.

The film deals with the mature themes of serious illness and disability, but these issues have been sensitively handled and their treatment in this work is suitable for young teenagers.
