Murakami meets animations
Murakami meets animations
The well-known Japanese writer Haruki Murakami and his existential meditations meet the world of animation. Our colleagues from CartoonBrew publish the preview trailer of the film.
The subject of this work is Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, a collection of short stories written from 1980 to 2005, which the French director Pierre Foldes is bringing to animation thanks to Cinéma Defacto and Miyu Productions.

Synopsis: A lost cat, a voluble giant toad, and a tsunami help an unambitious and schizophrenic accountant and his frustrated wife to save Tokyo from an earthquake and find meaning in their lives.

The director described the making as a hybrid film made with different techniques, from live-action shooting with 2d filters, 3D models and classic two-dimensional animation.

The film is co-produced by Arte France Cinema, Auvergne-Rhône-Mapes Cinema (France), Micro_Scope (Canada), Unité Centrale (Canada), Doghouse Films (Luxembourg), An Original Picture (Netherlands), and Proton Cinema (Hungary) with a budget of 6 million euro.

The end of the works are scheduled for the first half of 2022. Here the first trailer:
