Tony TakitaniThursday, 27 August 2009
Though Tony Takitani doesn't have such a big recognition even in Japan, it was shown at film festivals all over the world and it received many awards. It is really beautiful and the mood it has is airy and dreamy with the music by Ryuichi Sakamoto working perfectly well. More than anything, it is so well made that the feel of the original Murakami's story/his world is right there in the entire film as the moving images. It is amazing! Apparenty Tony Takitani is in Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman in the English version book. So read the story (it's a short story, easy to read!) and then see the film is my recommendation.
