Silk 2007

description written by member Zara:

Based on the Alessandro Baricco's novel, this story set in the 19th Century is about married French silkworm smuggler, Herve Joncour (Pitt), who travels to Japan to collect his clandestine cargo. While there he spots a beautiful European woman (Knightley), the concubine of a local baron, with whom he becomes obsessed. Without speaking the same language, they communicate through letters until war intervenes. Their unrequited love persists however, and Herve's wife Helene begins to suspect.

Silk Movie Review by Karma (2/1/2009)

The description above is a bit off--Knightley is the wife, not the concubine.

I was bored during this movie. It's lush and scenic, but it's very slow. One could say this is good--the director is trying to give you a sense of this story taking place over years, but it shouldn't feel like it's taking years to watch.
