The Butterfly is not 12 Monkeys
19 November 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A woman named Anna arrives in a city afflicted by lethal acid rain in search of the oblivion virus - an virus which erases memories. An agency provides two staff to help her: the guide Yuki, who tracks outbreaks and rushes clients to the scene to seek infection, and their driver K, an orphan who is desperate to find his family. But the virus proves elusive, and Anna (whose bad memories are triggered by guilt over her dead child) is ready to give up

  • until she comes across evidence that this may not be her first visit to


the city. Shooting fast and cheap on DV, Moon Seung-Wook creates a powerful dystopian vision in which the longed-for salvation is amnesia. The imagination on display here is impressive - I thought the film was going to match 12 Monkeys but it was all a little too experimental for that. The performances are excellent - It has Best Actress prizes from Puchon and Locarno festivals to prove it.
