Unfortunately, I don't think this great Japanese novel has been translated in English...
I re-read it in French this week because I hate flying and I remembered it as a slow-moving, melancholic, soft and "exotic" story (perfect to stop thinking about a plane crash) when I first read it during my trip to Iceland 3 years ago
(the book was a gift from my Mum - she has great taste in books)
This French movie by the génialissime director Jacques Audiard deeply moved me, I thought it was great when I watched it, and snippets of it kept re-emerging in my mind throughout the day
(I saw it in the morning in a Parisian cinema).
For once, I didn't read or see anything beforehand about the movie and I thought it was even better!
Do you know Audiard's work?
and a catchy song:
