I know what your thinking now. " What did is this new movie doing here ?" and i can simply answer that : that because i had to see a movie with my mom, and that's what she picked and i could do nothing about it, but i just thought, that if i'm watching this anyway, then why not write about it .
first thing you might notice is the off screen voincing, wich i like so muchi had to mention here, nothing facy about it thou. pitty if you ask me. Puting a voice behind the actual picture is one of few weapons that a director can use to occupy the hearts of his viewers, and in silk it was use just so that it would be used.
The picture it self is buitiflue, all the japanese locations, all macro shots on those bug thingies, truly stunning. Also, breath taking. literally, i slowed down my breathing just so i could hear everything that is going on. Thou from the visual point, there was a lack of mace-up used. The point that after 10 or more years they look the same helps me not to believe it as reality and accept it just as a movie and nothing more.
Dont want to be rude and all, dont want to say that this movie is bad or anything, but, i might just be me, i seems that this movie is slow , draggy, and not worth the time seeing it, i do recommend reading it. AS in the book, not as in binary code or something.
