Still making its way through festivals worldwide, Tran Anh Hung‘s Norwegian Wood details a tragedy embodying newfound love, lost innocence, and incurable heartbreak. Originally adapted from Haruki Murakami‘s novel of the same name. The synopsis as follows (via MIFF):
“A young college student is pulled towards two very different women in this tragic love story and coming-of-age saga, set against the backdrop of social unrest of late 1960s Japan.
Featuring several young Japanese stars on the rise (including Rinko Kikuchi from Babel), Norwegian Wood also boasts original music from Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood (There Will Be Blood) and sensuous cinematography by Mark Lee Ping Bin (In the Mood for Love).”
