Norwegian Wood

Very beautiful, at times achingly sad look at grief, guilt and growing up.

The relatively young cast conveys the rawness of bereavement and the attempt to make sense of loss, and the Japanese setting seemed to complement this with its lush countryside and changeable seasons, and the comparatively colourless images of city life.

You need to be in the mood for this but it’s lovely.
