L'entomologiste québécois Georges Brossard fit l'objet de ce film basé sur un réel évènement lui étant arrivé en 1987 où le rôle de Georges est joué par William Hurt. Poussé par la Fondation Rêves d'enfants, Georges Brossard avait emmené avec lui le jeune garçon David Marenger en phase terminale (cancer du cervelet) dans la forêt tropicale du Mexique pour réaliser son rêve de trouver un morpho bleu. Dans la jungle, il prend le garçon sur ses épaules parce que celui-ci ne peut pas marcher. Mais le petit de 8 ans se remet à marcher pendant qu'ils sont là-bas, et finirent par trouver le papillon bleu. De retour au Québec, à la suite d'une batterie de test par les médecins, le garçon était miraculeusement guéri. Il y a une scène qu'ils n'ont jamais voulu mettre dans le film, c'est quand Georges a lancé son fauteuil roulant en bas d'une falaise, qui est tombé, s'est fracassé, une roue est partie toute seule dans les airs, et Georges s'était dit ''enfin libre''.

i rely upon IMDb for accurate reviews this film is the first review I'm writing because the review of its so bad. it features some of the best outdoor photography I've seen in any movie I'm not a fan nor like insects but this film allows you to see them much closer and makes them more interesting then i could have imagined. the character and story is very well rounded characters very believable because there not characters. its like national geographic did a love story about a miracle, with comedy thrown in and a dash of action adventure and suspense . please see this film and make up your own mind. contrary to what you might see in reviews this film isn't geared towards anyone everybody should be able to enjoy it. one of the reviews on rotten tomatoes says it try to force your emotions i cant see this at all except for one dream sequence there's nothing fake or phony about this film and it genuinely makes you care for the characters. after seeing it i will be looking forward to adding it to my video collection
