Papillon, Le (2002, FRA) C-85m. *** D: Philippe Muyl. Starring Michel Serrault, Claire Bouanich, Nade Dieu, Francoise Michaud, Hélène Hily. Lonely butterfly collector Serrault makes the acquaintance of a neglected little girl, 8-year-old Bouanich. When her mother fails to show up one evening, the old man takes her with him on a trip to the mountains, where he hopes to catch a rare butterfly. Soft-spoken drama is not perfect but doesn't need to be. With a story and actors like this you can't go wrong. English title: THE BUTTERFLY.
