Overview

The autobiography of Henri Charriere, one of the few people to successfully escape from the notorious French penal colony of Devil's Island, served as the basis for Papillon. Steve McQueen plays the pugnacious Charriere known as "Papillon," or "butterfly," because of a prominent tatoo, incarcerated--wrongly, he claims--for murdering a pimp. He save the life of fellow convict Louis Dega Dustin Hoffman, a counterfeiter who will later show his gratitude by helping Charriere in his many escape attempts, and by smuggling food to Charriere when the latter is put in solitary confinement. One breakout, which takes Charriere and Dega to a leper colony and then to a native encampment, is almost successful, but Charriere is betrayed allegedly because he stopped for an act of kindness and back the prisoners go to French Guinea. Years later, Dega is made a trustee and is content with his lot, but the ageing, white-haired Charriere cannot be held back. A tribute to the unquenchability of the human spirit, Papillon brought in an impressive $22 million at the box office.

    Papillon is excellent. Bullitt is above average.

    Papillon is an excellent and unforgettable movie, everyone should see it. All aspects of movie making have been accomplished with great skill.


    Bullitt is a good "police" movie with very interesting close-ups and editing. The auto chase scenes are well done, and they show what was possible with skillful stunt drivers before computer animation was available. The supporting cast was quite talented and well chosen. As the director mentions in his commentary, there are noticeable parallels with western "cowboy" movies. Mcqueen injects subtle expressions of character beyond those of the average straight-faced hero.
