JY S (fr) wrote: Purple Butterfly is quite an interesting watch. It isn't interesting in the way where the story just knocks your socks off or where the film just spans many genres. This is a straight up Chinese gangster drama with a different way of telling the story.This film is almost like a silent picture. The dialogue is down to a minimum and I mean bare minimum. This will turn away a lot of people, but the silent treatment benefits this film to some degree. You see, this would have turned out like any old Chinese crime drama if the dialogue was written in the usual way. Instead, you have to rely on the camerawork to tell the story.Of course, having the camerawork carry the film does have its downsides. The story, in the second half, is a little complex, but not impossible to figure out. The first 30 minutes is real easy to follow, since there isn't much in the way of story. It is all character buildup and it is a bit much if you ask me. It really does feel like the beginning of the story happens at around the 40 minute mark.The ending is a bit drawn out and the last 5-10 minutes seem unnecessary. It is because of this that the film reaches 2 hours. It is long, especially for a low dialogue picture.Zhang Ziyi does lead this film, although there are a few other characters with just as much airtime. All the actors feel bland and that is more the style of the movie rather than poor acting.This film will not cater to everyone and it does take a chance at doing something out of the ordinary. It's a good watch if you can stand the slow burn of 120 minutes.

Georgieboy M (br) wrote: This film is not just about the nostalgic of life and the importance of memories, altogether it's a tribute for the making of movies and how they made us feel and how deep is in our psyche; this is represented by the final moment that the main character chose, at the end of the film, were not only the memory is in the film but the movie is the memory itself. All of this happens because in this kind of midheaven once you chose your memory they have to recreate it for you. But coming back to the movie plot; we have that the premise it's really bold: you can have only one memory for eternity. So which memory would you choose if you could only carry one remembering for eternity? Its a really hard question to answer and the reflexions and philosophical thoughts-an odor or a sound, just a moment in all our existence it's capable of make our life worth- that the movie raises make us not only enjoy the film but feeling it.Without doubts my favorite film of Koreeda.

Felipe F (au) wrote: A powerful story that suffers from lack of a gripping direction but nonetheless rises on the strenght of its leading ladies - particularly a radiant Jessica Tandy whose performance is more than enough to keep the audience captived.

Private U (jp) wrote: I loved the performances in this. Nice songs too. I haven't seen it for a while, I suppose i would find it too depressing now.

Paul D (ru) wrote: The best thing going for this remake is the fact that is it is in colour, bringing out the best of the visuals that the Johnny Weissmuller series lacked. It is however a pale imitation of that series with a disturbing reference to how animals were treated during the period this was filmed in.

David H (ru) wrote: Not a bad true-crime film, complete with the requisite nobody-to-somebody-to-kingpin-to-outsider arc. Lots of memorable scenes, a great cast, and a coherent story.One thing that I can't seem to shake is how much this seems like a movie prequel to The Wire. The main character, Ace Boogie (initials A.B.) is played by Wood Harris, the actor who played drug kingpin Avon Barksdale (initials also A.B.) in The Wire. Ace Boogie starts as an innocent, then is drawn into the world of drugs, becoming a cautious, cerebral lord of the drug world, much like Avon Barksdale. Initially, he lacks the rough street-smarts of Barksdale, but is frequently exposed to this violent world as he moves on. Though he renounces his former ways by the end, it is not unbelievable that he would be pulled back into it in time. It is a genesis story to a fascinating character, even though the stories are supposed to be unrelated.
