Michel Serrault stars as Julien, an ornery butterfly collector. When eight-year-old Elsa and her often-absent mother move into the apartment next to his, the persistent and curious Elsa adopts a reluctant Julien as her surrogate grandpa.

Butterfly movie Customer Reviews
||A sweet, quiet, beautiful movie|
A sweet, quiet, beautiful movie. The plot could only happen in France. In the U.S., the man would have been locked away for life. No, there is nothing untoward or suggestive in the film: it is a completely innocent film. The young actress, Claire Bouanich, gives an amazing performance for her years. English subtitles are good, but the film made me wish I spoke French. Fair scientific accuracy, although the object of pursuit is a moth, not a butterfly, which is also found in Spain. But then "The Moth" wouldn't make a very attractive movie title. Highly recommended.
