The Butterfly Photos

Movie Info

A young French girl, Elsa (Claire Bouanich), is often left on her own due to the work schedule of her single mother, Isabelle (Nade Dieu). After Elsa ends up spending time with Julien (Michel Serrault), a surly old butterfly collector, the two set out on a journey through the countryside. Intent on finding a particularly short-lived butterfly, Julien and Elsa form an unlikely friendship on their rural trek, but trouble arises when her mom becomes concerned as to her whereabouts.

Audience Reviews for The Butterfly

  • Dec 06, 2010
    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!

    I was flicking over to this movie on SBS while watching a movie I had already seen and liked screening on another channel. Eventually I didn't flick back to the other film. Surprisingly sweet. Claire Bouanich is by far the best child actress I have seen, even though I can't speak French.
