Description

The Beating of The Butterfly's Wings is an innovative examination of the chaos theory in action, as the film follows a dozen or so characters whose tiniest and seemingly most random gestures create ripples and waves in other peoples lives.

A woman on the morning train tells that the full moon will lead Tautou to her soulmate: from there The Beating of the Butterflys Wings follows a marvelous interlocking series of events in which little things (like whether or not a young museum guard eats a piece of chocolate) affect bigger ones (like whether or not an adulterous husband will tell his wife the truth).

The film follows the lives of a homeless man, a young appliance store clerk, her female roommate, a barfly, a resourceful young man on his way to a job interview, a man who is two timing his wife and a handful of other characters who semi-intersect in the course of one long day in Paris.

Amazon.com review:

Audrey Tautou (star of Amélie) shimmers like a born movie star in The Beating Of a Butterfly’s Wings. A woman on the morning train tells Tautou that the full moon will lead her to her soulmate; from there, The Beating of a Butterfly’s Wings follows a marvellous interlocking series of events, in which little affect bigger ones …..the coincidences of The Beating of a Butterfly’s Wings feel natural and compelling. A sweet and hopeful movie, with excellent performance all around, but Tautou's wide-open eyes leap out of her every scene, hypnotic and charming.
