Quotes

Flavia: I don't know why I always fell for girls. I can't even help my students. I always give up when I'm half way through doing something. If I go on like this, I'll hurt a lot of people.
Yip: Why do you blame yourself for everything? You've tried your best. That's good enough. No one will blame you.

Butterfly is Awesome
4 April 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Not the first lesbian flick i've watched, but so far the best i've ever watched. I wish so much i could watch the deleted scenes. unfortunately Its not sold at my place.

I've made few good wallpapers dedicated to both the stars of Tian Yuan and Josie Ho of the movie.

please comment or let me know what you feel about them.

The sexual scenes of the movie is just so heated up, yet it doesn't expose any of nu-dial parts of the stars, which makes the director just awesome. i love the ti-an yuan's character and also her beauty. bearing the look of an innocent cute girl, yet making her flirtatious and seductive role so prominent. supplementary to that, her beauty just makes her ever so attractive. I was shocked that Josie Ho was not nominated for best actress for this movie. she did a great job in portraying a confused, controlled, tiring and quiet character. yet be sexy when she seduces her girlfriend while in bed. awesome!
