slow in spots but heartwarming
1 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Blue Butterfly is based on a true story about a nine year old boy dying of a brain tumor whose last request is to capture the blue butterfly for his collection. He and his mother enlist the help of a renown entomologist to take them into the jungle to find the insect. At first the entomologist refuses, but eventually relents. They spend several days searching for the butterfly and have some dangerous encounters. Everyone learns a lot about life and nature. The scenery is great, but the films moves slowly in many spots. Other than some slow spots it is a relatively heart warming film. Excellent acting and top notch technically.
