Norwegian Wood

Category: Arts
Location: Japan, Tokyo
Abstract: An adaptation of the 1987 worldwide bestseller by Haruki Murakami, directed by the renowned Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung ("The Scent of Green Papaya", " The Vertical Ray of the Sun") and starring two of Japan's most popular actors.
Description: The stunningly beautiful NORWEGIAN WOOD faithfully captures the spirit of the original and elevates Murakami's prose to visually poetic heights. Matsuyama ("Death Note") and Kikuchi ("Babel") are heartbreaking as the couple whose relationship is haunted by the suicide of their best friend years ago. Set in the 1960s during the period of student unrest, the film focuses with Tran's trademark languid sensuality on a young man's awakening. Drawn to both his emotionally unstable childhood friend and a much sunnier, more outgoing young woman, he must negotiate the territory between lust and love, life and death - with often devastating results.
