Le Papillon - The Butterfly - 2002 film directed by Philippe Muyl. Legendary actor 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. But when Julien leaves town for a week-long hiking expedition in the Alps to find the "Isabella," an exotic butterfly as elusive as it is beautiful, he instead discovers an uninvited companion - Elsa! This is a sincere movie suitable for the whole family that manages to stay out of the tear-jerker or kiddy movie categories. Also starring Claire Bouanich as Elsa and Nade Dieu as Elsa's Mother. Unrated, 85 minutes. French audio and English subtitles.
