  1. A beautiful, harrowing film of understated power and perception that affords Fernando Fernán Gómez, the Spanish cinema's great, weathered veteran, yet another of his unforgettable performances.
  2. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy

    In the end, Butterfly is an infuriating film because it's so very contrived, so annoyingly phony.
  3. 50
    Though beautifully photographed, acted and written (the three source stories are skillfully blended into a single narrative), this leisurely, bittersweet look at a child's loss of innocence ends rather abruptly and inconclusively.
