The Power of Love,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silk [DVD] (DVD)
Having read the synopsis for this film, and other reviewers' comments, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but, on the whole I was pleasantly surprised. I feel that the storyline has already been adequately described and I found this to be somewhat sad and poignant, especially towards the end.
I too was not entirely convinced by Michael Pitt's portrayal of Herve Joncour and found his narrative a little monotonous. I can't really say that I found the film boring - perhaps just a little slow until it got under way. Overall, a very decent film (the underlying theme being the power of love rather than silkworm egg smuggling) and I was especially pleased that it was not drowned-out by loud background music.
