Murakamization Dept.


I don't know how I missed this one: a movie version of Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood.

Rinko Kikuchi Starring in Film Adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood | /Film

Kenichi Matsuyama, best known as L in the live action Death Note films, has been cast as Toru Watanabe, the main character in the film. More interesting to me (and I assume all of you) is the addition of Rinko Kikuchi, who has made her mark with Babel and The Brother’s Bloom, has been cast as Naoko, the emotionally trouble love interest who causes all sorts of heartache for Toru. The book is essentially a tale of Toru’s love life in his younger days, but as with everything Murakami it’s also so much more.
