The Butterfly Tree: Reviews

 

The Butterfly Tree - Full of Arthouse Nectar

 

The Switch  "Going above and beyond this directive, Jason Hargreaves’ cinematography is lush, with vivid dream sequences where

Fin is carried away by a cloud of butterflies and buried under dead leaves. Painterly colour tones enhance this film’s nostalgic, hyper-real visual aesthetic.

This vivid use of colour and lighting also function as projections of the characters’ bodily and mental states, augmenting the development and several

nuances of the story itself...."

 

NovaStream Movies "On paper, it is difficult to express how beautiful, realistic and raw this film is but I can assure you that it is. ....... If you are a fan of

Sofia Coppola’s pace and style, be sure to check this one out."

 

Filmink "…one of the most eye-catching and beautiful Australian films in some time...."

 

The Guardian "It’s as if the film itself takes cues from this moment, cinematographer Jason Hargreaves bathing the frame in rich, wet, gluggy colours...."

 

Melbourne International Film Festival | "Oxenbould shatters any lingering memories of the boy he was in 2014’s MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Paper

Planes as he embraces a role of complex emotional flux, subtly underscored by Jason Hargreaves’ resplendently lush cinematography – The Butterfly

Tree is a treat on the big screen."
