Critic Reviews

  1. The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The exceptional story of a low-level diplomat who had a 20-year affair with a man he thought was a woman, is, in Cronenberg's hands, turned into a beguiling masterpiece on the question of self-deception. [01 Oct 1993]
  2. San Francisco Chronicle
    Reviewed by: Mick LaSalle
    The film is a methodical and loving examination of two people constructing a fantasy for themselves. [08 Oct 1993]
  3. 63
    M. Butterfly does not take hold the way the stage play did.
  4. Chicago Tribune
    Reviewed by: Michael Wilmington
    M. Butterfly, David Cronenberg's visually stunning but oddly cold and sparkless adaptation of the much-prized David Henry Hwang play. [08 Oct 1993]
