5.0 out of 5 stars M Butterfly: David Cronenbergs minor masterpiece, 6 Aug 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: M. Butterfly [DVD] - [Region 2 Import] (DVD)
Based on the award winning play of the same name by David Henry Hwang, the story of a french diplomat Rene Gallimard/Jeremy Irons and Song Liling, singer at the Beijing Opera( John Lone), before and after the cultural revolution, is a beautifully mounted film with an intruiging plot. The last ten minutes is very painful watch - quite devastating. Due to the subtle nature of the plot and difficulties to translate this to the medium of film, there is something lacking - however it is a great experience to watch.

One of the best dramas I have seen.Excellent performances,thrilling scenario, unpredictable ending.It was one of the few movies that fascinated me, in such a way that I have been trying for a long time to find it in a dvd format and include it in my collection.A must-see!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jeremy Irons at his best, 13 Nov 2009
By 
This review is from: M. Butterfly [DVD] - [Region 2 Import] (DVD)
This is a marvellous performance from Jeremy Irons but the film is rather difficult to review without giving away
what is an extraordinary story. I spent a few years trying to track down this film after catching it on TV. I know very little about its history but seeing it once I knew I had to have it in my collection. So I am not going to reveal the story but if you like fascination, intrigue and oriental mystery, watch this rather dark film.
