A fresh, English subtitled trailer for the "Norwegian Wood" or as Radiohead fans know it as: "that-movie-Jonny-Greenwood-is-scoring."

Starring Rinko Kikuchi and Kenichi Matsuyama, and based on the book by Haruki Murakami, the film is a coming-of-age story told in flashback, spurred by the sitar strings of The Beatles’ title song. It played at Venice and TIFF to lukewarm reviews, and has already hit theaters in Japan. If anything, the film looks gorgeously shot and we have to admit, for a film that has been flying well under our radar, we're intrigued. However, for most, it will be the score that keeps people curious. Like Greenwood’s compositions for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “There Will Be Blood,” this piece was also based on a previously existing work, a composition called “Doghouse” which the musician wrote for the BBC Concert Orchestra and debuted last year at Maida Vale Studios. The soundtrack is rounded out by three songs by the excellent krautrockers Can.

The soundtrack will hit stores on March 7th, with the film landing in U.K. cinemas on March 11th. No word yet on a U.S. theatrical release date. [Nonesuch]
