Based on the best-selling coming-of-age novel by world-renowned author Haruki Murakami (Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles), this lush, gorgeously photographed adaptation features an original score by Grammy®-winner Jonny Greenwood (There Will Be Blood) of Radiohead.
Tokyo, the late 1960s... Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Toru Watanabe's personal life is similarly in tumult. At heart, he is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko (Rinko Kikuchi), a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is, until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not outgoing, vivacious, supremely self-confident marches into his life and Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.

A beautiful film adaptation of a great Haruki Murakami novel. Kenichi Matsuyama is wonderful in it. And Tran's direction is almost perfect.Published 2 days ago by SeekerStill
I'm giving this film 3 stars, for beautiful scenes and doing the best with what it could on a limited time frame for a film. The book of course, is significantly more enjoyable. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Kyle S

The book was really good, and even though the movie left things out and was a little different, I still loved it. The scenes were beautiful. The actors were really something. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Nicholl'e O'Lague
The movie, though faithful to the story line of the novel version, is however less enjoyable to follow. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Vinny Wolf
