Interesting interpretations of these Murakami short stories
24 February 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I recently acquired these two 16mm shorts on Japanese DVD which were re-released in 2001: "A Girl, She Is 100%" (based on the story "...100% no Onna no ko", or "The 100% Perfect Girl") and "Panya Shugeki" ("Attack on the Bakery").

Both take some liberties with Murakami's text ("Panya Shugeki" especially so!) but both are extremely entertaining. Murakami Haruki has never given any director his blessing to film any of his stories or novels, but these lo-fi interpretations are faithful to the spirit of these early stories. Required viewing for any Murakami Haruki fan!
