David Cronenberg Stany Zjednoczone, 1993

Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film M. Butterfly

Having not read any plot summary or read about this story, I went blindly into it like Jeremy Irons' character is blinded by his love for his "butterfly". This film definitely needs time because the third act makes it all worthwhile. This is when the whole film and its tragic beauty revealed itself to me. A very underrated Cronenberg film. 3.5 stars
