Yvon Marciano's "Le Cri De La Soie" has achieved a quasi cult film status due to its unconventional subject matter.
19 April 2013 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Most cult films deal with stories which are not an integral part of our traditional narrative landscapes.This is one major reason why they have to be written as well as directed with utmost care as meticulous research coupled with elements of entertainment must be integrated in them in order to convey the right message carried by them.French director Yvon Marciano's "The Cry of the Silk"/Le Cri De La Soie is one such film which has achieved a quasi cult film status worldwide due to its choice of a difficult subject:the relationship between a piece of clothing and a woman's sexuality.Debunking of the myth of the superiority of male sexuality is one of this film's major highlights. Yvon Marciano (1953-2011) also got full support from his co-writer Jean François Goyet to develop a subplot about unrequited love.It makes its presence felt through the roles enacted by veteran French actress Anémone and noted Italian actor/director Sergio Castellito who has graced numerous French films made by big names such as Jacques Rivette and Laetitia Masson.Lastly,the whole film bears the mark of the inimitable presence of Marie Trintignant (1962-2003) as the illiterate seamstress who would go to any length in order to indulge in her passions.This film has been inspired by the life and works by Gaëtan Gatian De Clérambault (1872-1934),a noted French ethnographer, photographer and psychiatrist.
