I probably saw the movie on TV or VHS in Norway sometime between 1992 and 1998. The style was a lot like The Indian in the Cupboard and The Borrowers. Most likely a children's or teen movie.

I think this movie was about a child (I think it was a boy) that had befriended a female fairy. The only thing I can remember was a scene with the fairy crying inside a room because she had found a butterfly collection that either belonged to the child or someone in the family. I think the fairy used telekinetic like magic to send the butterfly collection into a fireplace or a stove and then set them on fire because she felt betrayed by the child and mourned the death of all the butterflies.

I think the child was locked outside the door trying to explain why the butterflies was killed and framed and desperately begged the fairy for forgiveness.


I've found your movie. It's "Motýlí cas O Mundo Mágico de Alec" (known as "The Flying Sneaker" in English)

Little Rehor isn't allowed to play with the other boys. His only friend is the girl next door, Luci. Rehor's father is doctor on a boat and he has sent Rehor a package with butterfly larvae. When they hatch he discover a fairy who can do magic tricks.

You can watch the full movie online here (timeshifted to the scene with the burning butterflies)
