    Magical

    Beautifully filmed - nature larger than life. The story is inspirational & full of hope, even in the face of terminal illness. At times magical & at times heart-wrenching, I highly recommend this film for the whole family.

    beautiful and heartfelt

    what a wonderful film. In a day and age when we are all in a such a hurry to live life to its fullest, this film stops us in our tracks ~ to look at life, love, and the beauty of nature in every day. If you have never looked at a butterfly or life with wonder, watch The Blue Butterfly.
