One Hundred Years of Solitude


  • Shuji Terayama's play One Hundred Years of Solitude (百年の孤独, originally performed by the Tenjo Sajiki theater troupe), as well as his film Farewell to the Ark (さらば箱舟) are loose (and not officially authorized) adaptations of the novel by García Márquez transplanted into the realm of Japanese culture and history.

While One Hundred Years of Solitude has had such a large impact on the literary world, and is the author's best selling and most translated work, there have been no movies produced of it; García Márquez never agreed to sell the rights to produce such a film.
