The Blue Butterfly - Amazingly Good
6 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it premiered at the National Screen Institute Film Exchange in 2004, and i thought it was the best movie there. I think the DOP on that production is probably one of the best in the world. The camera effects were great, and the story itself was very inspiring. And yeah ill admit it was very slow, but if you really love watching movies and art of making them, then this movie you should see. Plus the Art director must have had is work cut out for him the set designs were very detailed, I mean the whole village it took place in was built from ground up and i think they did an awesome job. And then the sounds they put into the movie of the insects and the colors it was all so well done. I would so definitely see this movie again and again. trust me I think you would love this movie its a must see if your a movie buff. I gave the film a 9 out of 10...for greatness!!
