Critic Reviews for The Butterfly Tree

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The heart-in-hand sincerity of its worldview is what makes the film endearing and aggravating by turns.

Top Critic

This rather underpowered tale of sexual awakening and grief proceeds at a leisurely pace before a couple of late scenes that strive to outdo each other for sheer melodramatic overreach.

Cameron may be an expert when it comes to creating visual magic but images aren't everything. Words do matter.

November 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It is a bold and promising work, rich in imagery and led by uniformly strong performances.

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 14.50/20 | Full Review…

Oedipal wackiness, arch stabs at farce, and nickel-and-dime fantasy frolics ensue, producing a seriously disagreeable stir of unmixable narrative and stylistic ingredients.

While The Butterfly Tree is a marvel to behold with its gorgeous style and cinematography, the underwritten characters and tropey plot undermine it.
