Based on a collection of short stories by Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman is an animated feature film that was produced using a new technique of “live animation” to striking visual, sound and storytelling results.

It follows the lives of multiple characters as they navigate post-Tsunami existence and the existential repercussions of urban life, including an unambitious bank employee, his disheartened wife, a delusional accountant, a lost cat and a giant talkative frog.

“Gorgeously drawn. . . Translucent lines and rough crosshatched textures throughout the background art give the film both tactility and a touch of ephemerality.” BFI/Sight & Sound
