Dreaming Murakami Nitesh Anjaan

Film index A to Z

What might we expect of the inner life of someone who is completely dedicated to recreating someone else’s imaginary world? For more than two decades, Mette Holm has been the Danish translator of the Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. Poised, meticulous and extraordinarily calm, she is always searching for the words and turns of phrase that will convey Murakami’s distinctively surrealistic and melancholy prose. Is she even aware of the giant frog that seems to follow her everywhere, whether to protect or threaten her? A naturalistic portrait with dreamy flights of fancy, Dreaming Murakami invites us to share a slice of Mette Holm’s life as if the famous writer were telling the story. (BD)
