M.BUTTERLFY

Please come back. My audiences miss the white devil in their midst.

RG: You made me see the beauty of the story, of her death. It’s, it’s pure sacrifice. He’s not worthy of it, but what can she do? She loves him so much. It’s very beautiful. SL: Well, yes, to a Westerner. RG: I beg your pardon? SL: It’s one of your favorite fantasies, isn’t it? The submissive Oriental woman and the cruel white man.
