wake up! An earthquake and a giant frog help characters to reveal “truths they’ve been hiding from themselves.”
This film is aimed not only at the millions of Murakami fans around the world, but also at a public into innovative story telling which has been defined as magical realism, and for which animation is a great medium. Stories are made up of memories, dreams and fantasies, influenced by individual visions of the earthquake – in the form of evil trees, a giant worm, a secret wish, an unknown password, a mysterious empty box and dark endless corridors – in which the main characters try to reconnect with who they really are.
