Norwegian Wood

Norwegian Wood (2010) directed by  Anh Hung Tran  based on the book Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami is another film adaption of a popular book that doesn’t work particularly well. It’s not terrible, and for fans of the book it does provide a pleasant revisiting of the book. For someone who hasn’t read the book the film would not make too much sense. Tran is a good director who notably directed Cyclo but here he hasn’t managed a really strong adaptation of the book. The scenery is very pretty and the film looks good. It’s another film adaptation that would have been better done as a longer TV series that was closer to the book.
