Critic Reviews for Madame Butterfly
Besides a visual combination of authentic Japanese realism and picturesque, dream-like cinematography that matches the lushness of Puccini's music, director Frederic Mitterrand gives the opera a distinctively cinematic gravity and subtlety.
A vibrant and beautiful French screen adaptation of Puccini's opera set in Japan in 1904.
great art, transcendently moving
Audience Reviews for Madame Butterfly
(*** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] An unique and fascinating piece of work.
Sweeping scenery and impressive performance make this already stellar opera a joy to watch on the big screen. I can't say the opera really benefited from being adapted to film, but I found it as captivating as the live performance.
Gorgeous, heartrending music, and excellent performances. I love opera, and this is by far the best I've seenyet.
