The Beating of The Butterfly's Wings is an innovative examination of the chaos theory in action, as the film follows a dozen or so characters whose tiniest and seemingly most random gestures create ripples and waves in other peoples lives. A woman on the morning train tells that the full moon will lead Tautou to her soulmate: from there The Beating of the Butterflys Wings follows a marvelous interlocking series of events in which little things (like whether or not a young museum guard eats a piece of chocolate) affect bigger ones (like whether or not an adulterous husband will tell his wife the truth). The film follows the lives of a homeless man, a young appliance store clerk, her female roommate, a barfly, a resourceful young man on his way to a job interview, a man who is two timing his wife and a handful of other characters who semi-intersect in the course of one long day in Paris.
