Critic Reviews for Le papillon
The film has a sweetness that stops short of sentimentality.
The story is as predictable as a hot summer in South Florida, but if you're in need of comfort, Le Papillon is a good choice.
An exceptionally satisfying film of much grace and beauty.
If there's anyone to credit for The Butterfly's eventual triumph over the inherent fatuousness of the material, it's the great Serrault and his tiny leading lady, who matches her elder nearly line for line and look for look.
Depending on your perspective, this French family drama will either feel sweetly sentimental or shamelessly manipulative.
Michel Serrault's typically expert performance and writer-director Philippe Muyl's ability to avoid the usual cliches in his execution of the tale give The Butterfly an undeniable appeal.
Audience Reviews for Le papillon
A wonderfully endearing film. The two main characters are brilliant, effective and adorable. The film maker manages to take a story that could be syrupy sweet and "hollywoodish," and keeps it real and very engaging. I don't know that I would necessarily call it a children's film, but there isn't much that's objectionable for kids, with the possible exception of topics related to a semi-delinquent parent, but those topics are handled very well. The story is largely about a neglected girl and a lonely man who find that they have something rewarding and fulfilling to offer each other. It's delightful!
Delightfully unexpected invigorating refreshment! A movie with substance, heart and love for life... and we need so little to have all of that! I enjoyed every second of it!
