Storyline

Eunice is walking along the highways of northern England from one filling station to another. She is searching for Judith, the woman, she says to be in love with. It's bad luck for the women at the cash desk not to be Judith, because Eunice is eccentric, angry and extreme dangerous. One day she meets Miriam, hard of hearing and a little ingenuous, who feels sympathy for Eunice and takes her home. Miriam is very impressed by Eunice's fierceness and willfulness and follows her on the search for Judith. Shocked by Eunice's cruelty she tries to make her a better person, but she looses ground herself. Written by Robert Stroetgen <stroetgen@rrz.uni-hamburg.de>

I loved it, I don't care what anyone else says.
1 February 1999 | by (athens, ga, usa) – See all my reviews

I found "Butterfly Kiss" to be mesmerizing, horribly sad, and strangely energizing. Twisted is the right word for it, but there was more to it than two crazies running around killing people. The bond between Mi and Eu that was cemented so quickly after them having met each other is the most fascinating facet of the whole story. What Mi gives up for Eu is heartbreaking and amazing.
