Neither movie nor opera
28 September 1999 | by (Gumma, Japan) – See all my reviews

Neither movie nor opera is this. This is just a film explaining about a queer story in Japan, which was dreamed out for an opera by a foreigner but no Japanese thinks is true. Kaoru Yachigusa, playing a part of Madame Butterfly, is very pretty and Japanese-like. She may be the only profit you can get from this poor film.
