2022 Annecy International Animation Film Festival — Jury Distinction
Official Selection of the 2023 International Film Festival Rotterdam
This entrancing animated tale is an adaptation of several stories by international bestselling Japanese author Haruki Murakami. Follow the fantastical story of a giant talking frog, a lost cat and a tsunami, a bank employee, his wife, and an accountant as they uncover truths they’ve been hiding from themselves to find deeper meaning to their lives.
While Pierre Földes’ exquisite animation visually brings to life Murakami’s sensibilities and interests, his film remains a deeply personal interpretation of the author’s magical realism.
