Mainly a curiosity
16 November 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The Madam Butterfly story, with the character names changed, perhaps for copyright reasons. Fritz Lang fans will probably want to see it, but I do not think that it is worth going you of your way for.

Mainly interesting to me for the various items from Oriental curio stores used for set decoration and costumes. Few of the cast look Japanese or move in a Japanese manner (walking in a kimono takes practice and women would be embarrassed to show their arms).

I saw the Dutch/Italian restoration, which mostly looks very nice and clean and is nicely tinted. The titles were in Dutch. Running time was about 85 minutes.
