Synopsis

Butterfly, a faithful Japanese wife, waits patiently in Nagasaki for the return of her American husband, Pinkerton. She sees the Stars and Stripes fluttering atop an approaching ship and rightly surmises that Pinkerton is onboard. However, the feckless foreigner is arriving in the company of his "real" Caucasian wife, causing the heartbroken Butterfly to commit suicide. This masterpiece of Japanese silhouette animation makes the best of its source material.

Ochou Fujin no Gensou is a literal interpretation of the Operatic performance by Giacomo Puccini, which in itself is based on a French novel "Madame Chrysanthemum" aka Madam Butterfly. The book shaped a lot of Western attitudes towards Japan and is considered a seminal work of western literature involving aspects of Japanese culture. The animated work in itself is a very surface level adaptation of the story beats with a more Japanese interpretation and is much less sympathetic to the Naval officer than the original novel. In a way it even works as a propaganda film, but mostly the work is pretty seminal for its read more
