Kjell-Åke Andersson's critically acclaimed film deals with the large questions in life to an audience from five years and upwards. Butterflies is about the five-year-old girl Sara who is like any other kid and lives with her, usually tired and stressed, mom who always comes get her late at kindergarten. But sometimes in boring every-day life, she gets that feeling of butterflies in her stomach, a magical happiness that also gives the ability to fly. It's mostly her self-esteem that makes her fly, but at the hospital her mother takes her to, doctors try to explain Sara’s amazing ability based on their scientific models, and obviously butterflies disappear. Now she is worried that she will never be able to fly again and about the ill boy in the room next door. "Butterflies is just the type movie I request in articles and debates, longing for and wishing for my own children," Malena Jansson writes in SvD and rates it 5 out of 6.
