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.
Why do you blame yourself for everything? You've tried your best. That's good enough. No one will blame you.

Almost every movie about gay or lesbian themes seem to have the same problem, they think they are saying something new and definitive about the topic, but really they repeating the same old trash.
According the cover of the DVD, butterfly was a bit of a shock horror scandal movie in Hong Kong. However there is little new to be said here. Flavia is a respectable married school teacher with a child. But when she was a school student she had a lesbian relationship.
She meets a girl in a supermarket who awakens her suppressed desires.
Using some interesting camera techniques to portray different times and feelings this makes this served to annoy me more than enlighten me (I think it is a Hong Kong, the camera is used to enforce a feeling or moment).
What happens in this movie is both beautifully told, but overly pedestrian. It could have been told in a much short way and really all that was being said was that if you are a lesbian you are a lesbian.
Still it is nice movie that might be good to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
