Nocturnal Butterflies

Nocturnal Butterflies

A nocturnal butterfly files into the waiting room of the “Paul Delvaux” suburban railway station. Two petrified women will come alive for a couple of minutes till the evening train arrives bringing a disquieting visitor. A great admirer of Paul Delvaux’ work, Raoul Servais tried to enter into the unusual universe of this master of contemporary painting. For this film he was inspired by some of Delvaux’ paintings, adding to them his own cinematographic interpretation.
