An excellent adventure into the mind and heart of a temerarious woman.
17 March 2015 | by NewMediaSusanSee all my reviews

It is not everyday you get sucked into a time warp and go on a journey as if you are there. When I watched The Gun, The Cake and The Butterfly sometimes I had to ask myself, am I dreaming?

The documentary unfolds into the world of Amanda Eliasch. Almost immediately you are brought to a moving life changing event that most people would not reveal. Yet Amanda reveals and allows us into the most intimate, zany and thought provoking areas of her temerarious life.

The neat aspect of this documentary is the duality of her blonde self and her brunette alter ego. Together they intertwine thoughts, experiences all over the world. When you are finished watching you understand why The Gun, The Cake and The Butterfly are part of her life.
