A quiet, beautiful film.
Verified purchase
I was completely surprised by this. Being a huge Michael Pitt fan, I could watch him in anything, but was a bit reluctant to see him cast as a romantic lead. He was perfect! The story is timeless and traditional; a man in love with a woman he cannot have, while trying to be loyal to his wife. I am not a fan of films where men are married to an incredible woman, but long for something else. It's been done far too many times, but this story takes many turns that evolve into unpredictable plot lines, each and every one being a huge surprise. Basically, I had no idea what was going to happen next in this film. Also, the chemistry between Pitt and his co-stars is amazing. Knightly is perfect as his delicate wife, and Sei Ashina is also perfect as the quiet dream woman he longs to be with. Or maybe not. And the ending has an amazing surprise that will break your heart and make you want to go right to the beginning and watch it all over again. Also, the cinematography is breathtaking and reminded me of The Revenant in a few scenes. Excellent film that will not leave you disappointed if you love a beautiful, tragic romance.

This is a unique story of love, trade and exotic adventure.

An absolutely beautiful movie. The back stories of the main characters are disclosed early enabling viewers to care about this saga. For closer look into Japanese daily life I believe Last Samari is more satisfying.
The history and actual processing of silk is wonderfully detailed.
The love story is heartfelt with a twist befitting the best mystery.

sorry I paid for this movie. It was not a good story, poorly written monotonous and boring.

Absolutely absurd...totally ridiculous!

You could not to pay me to watch that nonsense again. Slow, boring, laughable plot; wholly unappealing cast. The guy--in his role--was a complete jerk. Kept wondering where the story was going. What a stu - pid waste of time. Should have turned it off after the first 20 min. In a word, baka-tare trash.

Cinematically beautiful & haunting

Cinematically beautiful & haunting. I think I liked that more than the story. I think I should have learned more about silk were it based more than on the beauty of the shots. And that is what drove me to want to own it so I could watch it when I wanted to.
