Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman

A talkative frog, a giant earthworm and an evil willow tree tum the humdrum lives of a grieving lover, a nondescript accountant and an emancipated woman upside down.
Foldes pulls off combining six short stories by Haruki Murakami into a single narrative. Delving deeply into how the lives ofthree ordinary individuals unfold, and their sudden desire to chuck their daily routines down the drain, Blind Willow captures the gentle empathy of the original works with sensitivity and humour. A tale of initiation as moving as it is striking: a feel­good magic potion bottled into a film.
