The heart-in-hand sincerity of its worldview is what makes the film endearing and aggravating by turns.
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.
The air and aroma of The Butterfly Tree is slushy and thick, so thick you could cut it with a knife.
If occasional forays into CGI fantasy betray the low budget, the production design and cinematography are, for the most part, gorgeous.
With its melodramatic highs and lows, The Butterfly Tree is every bit as adolescent and as troubled as its protagonist.
Set in a quiet rural town, this visually rich romantic triangle puts a sharp edge on the usual coming-of-age template
Cameron may be an expert when it comes to creating visual magic but images aren't everything. Words do matter.
It is a bold and promising work, rich in imagery and led by uniformly strong performances.
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.
Saddles its story with too much obviousness and convenience to have the desired impact.
