Plot

In an ancient China torn by wars, butterfly-killers appear. A warlord tries to understand this mystery and a famous writer agrees to investigate the case.
 
  Review  

The first Tsui Hark movie is very original and ambitious. He tries to integrate to the kung fu world some pieces of the western cinema. Made like a police investigation, the movie shows the illusions and the tricks of the cinema. With a very good estheticism, Butterfly Murders lacks of fluidity but the dark and mysterious environnement is attractive.
