  1. John Woodall's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    I'll try not to compare this to the novel, but I think most people agree that it lacks the relatability, detail, and tone that many came to expect. I thought the film felt strangely put together, preventing me from ever being a part of anything that was going on. The real saving grace of this was its soundtrack, which was wonderfully done although imperfectly implemented. Just read the book.

  2. madtobesaved's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Not surprisingly, the book was better.

  3. choupinet's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Despite the criticism, I actually enjoyed this cinematic adaptation of Murakami's novel.

  4. Setya Rahmah's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Saya sudah menonton film ini sejak sebulan lalu, baru kemudian saya membaca bukunya. Entah kenapa dalam film ini, tokoh Reiko-San terlihat seperti tempelan. Tidak penting. Mengada-ngada. Ah, what a pity!

  5. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Great performances but those damn following steadicam shots made the performances awkward.

  6. RockFuzzEleven's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    I'm norwegian so I know all about the norwegian wood ;)

  7. Ordon's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    I gave it two because the edits were nice, but honestly what the hell. I'm gonna give the book another go, it'd make more sense than this...

  8. Lily Parmenter's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Snooze fest. Gorgeous interior design and landscapes, but that was all that kept me watching. The female characters were boring and irritating. I could barely get through this. Bummer. Nice music, too.

  9. cosmin's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Not as good as the book but this goes for every good book and would have been to much to expect - compressing a 300+ pages book in 2 hours of movie time. Some of the scenes and characters were a little off from what I remembered or imagined but that is ok. I liked the Japan 1960' atmosphere meticulous recreation.

  10. ShawnD's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Is it possible to talk about this movie without referencing the book on which it's based? What I enjoyed about the book is that it's of a specific setting and doesn't apologize for being nostalgic. The movie, save for a few early scenes and obvious music references, has a timeless quality. And the lead characters, particularly our hero, have an airless quality, which keeps a profoundly a moving story at arm's length.

  11. David R Williams's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    A deeply moving exploration of love and desire, sorrow and loss, madness and despair. Beautifully rendered.

  12. Samuel Wells's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Smart and intimate. Norwegian Wood handles deeply profound issues through atmosphere and body language, relying on the viewer to not need heavy handed dialogue to explain the finer details at work. Each point strikes a balance between the heightened reality of film and the truth of reality. I points I still felt distant to the film and wished to be invited in more to better feel the characters.

  13. Linda's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    quite different than the book, but that's ok!

  14. 2multo's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Hypnotically beautiful. Brings out every possible human emotion. Masterful throughout.

  15. Lucy Zhang's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Beautiful, subtle; but triggers your seasonal affective disorder.

  16. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    I hate it when they turn books into melodramas. What you get with melodrama is one note performances, and one mood. The moments of happiness are quickly followed by suicidal regret. So over the top. More like one of those bad dreams where you can't stop crying.

  17. turnerBroadcast p3Dr0's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

  18. jkristianl's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    morning woods and evening moods. pretty bad

  19. Anca.'s rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    visually appealing but it doesn't get near the greatness of Murakami's book

  20. luminous's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    The soundtrack is amazing.

  21. opandadodavid's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Desiludiu-me, nem sempre conseguiu captar a essência e atmosfera do livro

  22. felisaf's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Just read the novel and stay away from the movie because you'll be just disappointed..like me. Although, Kiko Mizuhara is just stunningly pretty.

  23. Paula Toni's rating of the film Norwegian Wood

    Meu, que bad. Pensa num filme que você não deveria ir de metrô pra assistir no cinema, quase me joguei entre o vão do trem e a plataforma.
