Jun Ichikawa’s brilliant adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s short story. The film centers on Tony Takitani, the neglected only son of a jazz musician. His talent in drawing leads to a successful career in advertising, a life he is ambivalent about. After an encounter with client Eiko, played by Miyazawa Rie, he comes alive. They marry and live a rich life together—until they don’t. With music by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ichikawa captures a spiritual isolation felt at the turn of the century in his stunning yet subtle cinematic technique.
