SILK: inspiring words & images

setaSilk is the film adaptation of Italian author Alessandro Baricco’s novel of the same name. I recommend the italian version for those who want to appreciate the taste of nostalgia of this unique novel. It’s particularly strong when snow is approaching.


It was released in September 2007 through New Line Cinema and directed by The Red Violin director, François Girard.

American actor Michael Pitt stars in the lead role of the French silkworm smuggler Hervé Joncour, with British actress Keira Knightley as his wife, Hélène, a teacher and keen gardener. Japanese actors Miki Nakatani and Koji Yakusho are also featured. Exterior Japanese scenes were filmed in the city of Sakata. Knightley’s scenes were filmed in Sermoneta, Italy, a small medieval village near Latina.

Everytime time that I look for inspiring images or words, this  story come to my mind. Here’s a scene from the MOVIE

Enjoy it and let it inspire you


About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
