Norwegian Wood Pictures

Norwegian Wood.

You may vaguely remember me talking about the news that Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood, was soon to be turned into a film by Tran Anh Hung.

Since then not much has been heard about the production until now, with Wildgrounds coming to the rescue with some stills from the set.

Visually, Hung seems to have captured the right mood of the time and place of the story, although having never seen any of his previous work I’ve no idea about how good a film maker he is however the consensus generally is positive. I’ll use this as motivation to check out one of his earlier films. Check out the rest of the photos below.

Are you excited, if you haven’t already make sure you read the book first. It reminded me a lot of one of my favourite books of all time, The Catcher In The Rye.

    i know the movie is so not going to be as good as the book, just hope that this does not ruin the love i have for the book. Hate it when people base their perception on the movie when they have not actually experienced the magic of the book.

  • I loved the book, it started my love affair with the work of Haruki Murakami. I don't know if you ever saw Tony Takitani a film adaptation of one of his short stories, it was beautifully filmed and scored.

    I suppose in view of that and having enjoyed the work of Tran Anh Hung, I'm optimistic that it'll be faithful in the spirit of the book.
