He loves her...not.
Young love falls for an old lie as "the happiest girl in Japan" eagerly marries a swaggering, shallow US Navy man who embodies the phrase "love is fleeting." Wrapped in rapturous musical beauty that will bring you to tears is a heartbreaking ending that will bring you to your knees. We can only watch as Butterfly floats toward her fate.
