« In reality it’s hard to say what makes Swallowtail Butterfly a good film, I would have to say that the reason are probably different between most people. The thing that is certain is that this movie has a powerful story that is full of a lot of emotion. It is something that is bound to leave an affect on you either good or bad but you can never deny that this film has substance. If you already seen a movie by Shunji Iwai and enjoyed it I strongly suggest taking a look at this film. If you enjoy slow film with a great characters and a lot of depth then this might interest you.»
