Here’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while. Even though it showed at both the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals to not-so-great reviews, Norwegian Wood is still something I find myself curious about and excited for. Based on the novel of the same name by Haruki Murakami, directed by Tran Anh Hung and starring Kenichi Matsuyama and Rinko Kikuchi, the romantic drama has just gotten a trailer from The Guardian (via NoneSuch), and I think it looks pretty beautiful.

The shots selected here feel like there’s a real sense of thought put into them, and also have a satisfying look to them on a purely technical level. The two leads look pretty nice together, although this lets us know pretty clearly that it might not work out for them. It’s also nice that the preview has the Beatles song that shares a name »
