Summary: Life takes a precarious, but passionate turn for a young Frenchman in love with two women from different cultures in this romance based on the novel. It is 1860s France and just as young Herve Joncour (Michael Pitt) marries local girl Helene (Keira Knightley), he is sent abroad to acquire healthy silkworm eggs for the ailing French business. The trip to Japan is perilous: both the journey and the daunting merchant who brokers the deal. But upon meeting the Japanese trader's lovely mistress, life and love for Herve will never be the same. With Koji Yakusho, Alfred Molina, Mark Rendall, Miki Nakatani and Sei Ashina. Written by Francois Girard and Michael Golding, based on the book by Alessandro Baricco. Directed by Francois Girard.
