Norwegian Wood

I’m not entirely convinced that Tran Anh Hung’s 2010 adaption of Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood is successful. By trying to include nearly every event and character from Murakami’s much-loved bildungsroman, the film loses its breath and comes across as rushed and airless. However, the costume selection, soundtrack (who doesn’t love Can?) and cinematography are spot-on. Kiko Mizuhara is a particularly inspired casting choice. Following are some great screen caps culled from Google.
