Critic Reviews for Butterfly---A Grimm Love Story
Kudos to screenwriter T.S. Faull for creating complex characters who, while their actions and reactions may not always be relatable, come together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle to show a cohesive picture in the end.

Audience Reviews for Butterfly---A Grimm Love Story
they need to update this since the film is now called "Grimm Love" a very disturbing film especially the last 30 minutes
As he holds his willing victim, he sees their shadow on the wall and says, ?Together, we make a beautiful butterfly? (something like that). Sounds disturbing? No, not yet...how about these quotes:
?Oliver Hartwin wanted to eat someone. Simon Grombeck wanted to be eaten. They were a perfect match.?
?Bite my thing! Bite it off! Bite it off!?
?There's no way back for me. Only forward. Through your teeth.?
?You are delicious.?
Yeah! I bet it sounds disturbing now.
Katie Armstrong (Kerri Russell) is working on a college paper and decided to write about Oliver Hartwin (Thomas Kretschmann). She travels to his hometown to speak with people in the community about him.
Supposedly based on true events, Oliver had a strong desire to eat human flesh. He grew up with a looney mother and a creepy imaginary friend that didn?t really give the best advice.
When Simon Grombeck (Thomas Huber) was a young boy his mother committed suicide because she found him playing doctor with another boy naked. Simon lived with the guilt that he killed his mother and had a strong desire to have someone bite away at his flesh.
These two crackpots found each other on the internet and long story short...they both got what they wanted. Oliver was nice enough to record the events...he referred to it as a wedding...something he wants to watch over and over again. Katie gets a hold of this tape and in the end we watch the gruesome act unfold right along with her.
Oliver put out a request on a cannibal site for more flesh. Luckily, this was brought to the attention of the authorities and he was caught before he could kill again.
I?m not one that can really deal with movies showing cannibalism but I figured if it got too bad I would turn it off. They showed just enough to make me cringe. I was grateful that they avoided zooming in on scenes that would have surely made me turn the movie off. The story is dark and dreary but jaw dropping...I couldn?t turn it off.
I recommend this scrumptious movie for at least one watch! Bon appétit!
[FONT=Fixedsys]To see this movie, is to experience the dark side. The belly of the beast, a place many of us dare not look. Sequences from this film lingered inside my mind for days, weeks - constantly capturing my thoughts, my heart, forcing me to ask questions I'd simply never considered. The performances from the two leads are outstanding, daring, and award worthy. This is a complicated tale, one of desires, the forbidden, and in the most bizzare sense, love. Everyone should at least see this movie once, it's based upon tru events, and will certainly leave you sleeping with the light on. [/FONT]
