The Comic Critic Reviews The Butterfly and The Return of Stickman #822

The Butterfly is a family-friendly movie that I can get behind. This is not one of those “nanny” films I complain about so often. There’s a many-layered story going on here, well written, keeping both the child viewer engaged and the adult viewer intrigued. The comfort of plot predictability is only vaguely in your mind, as there are enough gentle twists and turns to create doubt. Will this film follow a conventional story line? The only drawback about showing this to your kids is that it’s a French film and a possibility that your copy might not be dubbed, thus forcing your children to read subtitles. I say, “Start them while they’re young.”
