One-of-a-kind writer/director Joe Sarno always maintained that the brain is our primary erogenous zone and while his erotically charged films are full of the usual quotient of sex and nudity it is the carefully constructed plots and situations that grab the audience, not the eye candy.

Sometimes called the Ingmar Bergman of sex films, Sarno devotes far more time to establishing the interrelationships of his characters than any other erotic film makers, most of whom were content to hurl boobs at the audience with little or no context.

As a result of Sarno's care and love, these films still hold a lot of interest today, while the indiscriminate boob parades provoke only yawns.

BUTTERFLIES is the story of a farm girl who strikes out for the city only to find that the lights and glamour aren't all they seem. It’s one of the standard adult-movie plot lines, but Sarno works his magic as always, endowing the story with complexity and richness, and of course lots and lots of sex and nudity.  (Lars)
