“Love knows no borders”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “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.”
