Movie Info

In a futuristic metropolis, young Ageha (Ayumi Ito) loses her mother, and Glico (Chara), an infamous prostitute, takes the girl under her wing and helps her survive in the city. Ageha takes a job at a salvage yard with the unscrupulous Feihong (Hiroshi Mikami), whose counterfeiting operation provides him with enough money to open a nightclub. But when a group of gangsters learn about this plan, they violently demand a cut of the action, and threaten the lives of Ageha, Glico and Feihong.

Critic Reviews for Swallowtail Butterfly (Suwaroteiru)

All Critics (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Swallowtail Butterfly is a beautiful film that suffers much from its extended duration and the fact that Iwai tried to include many more elements than he actually could.

Audience Reviews for Swallowtail Butterfly (Suwaroteiru)

  • Feb 04, 2008
    Touching and gritty film about Japan. Without knowing a lot about Japan culture I still enjoyed it, but I'm sure the more you know about Japan the more you would appreciate this film.
