Takemoto is a struggling student at an art college, with no goals or ambitions. One day he sees a girl painting and it is love at first sight (on his part). Unluckily for him, his friend Morita also falls in love with her, and unluckily for both of them, Hagumi is totally oblivious to both of their affections. A story of the crazy antics of art and love, and the purity of art and love.

I got this film because I enjoyed the Honey & Clover manga, so I already knew the characters and story. I've watched several live action adaptions of various anime/manga series, and this one was one of the better adaptions I've seen. As with all live action adaptions, this one tries to cram to much into too little, but even someone who is unfamiliar with Honey & Clover could catch on quickly. Yes, they will miss those tiny details and obscure references, but it won't take away from their overall viewing experience. I watched this with several friends and my sisters. The friends hadn't seen/read Honey & Clover, the sisters had. Everyone enjoyed it and thought it was a cute film, but one friend (a guy no less! and not an anime fan), really liked it. No one thought it was confusing, or incomplete. It actually wraps up the story pretty well while leaving room for a sequel (not that they will do one).

The actors fit their roles quite well. It is always hard to take an anime/manga character, with their weird hair, huge eyes, and extreme hight differences (Hagumi is really short), and have them come to life in real people. I still vastly prefer the anime versions of the characters, but I came to accept their live action counterparts during the course of the movie. Other than the characters, there are no other elements in Honey & Clover that have trouble translating to live action.

I'm a big fan of Japanese actor, Sho Sakurai -- who plays the main character, Takemoto -- as well as being a fan of the manga, Honey & Clover. This adaptation, while not 100% accurately portraying the manga, does a fair job.

It is revolves around 5 art-school college students. Takemoto falls in love with Hagu at first sight -- the niece of his art professor. Hagu is a prodigy artist who specializes in abstract paintings. The other art-prodigy is Morita (who has been in the art school for 8 years and has yet to graduate), a wood-sculpture major, and he and Hagu seem to have a special bond over their talent and passion for art - thereby setting up a love triangle. The other 2 characters are Morita and Yamada, both victims of unrequited love. Morita loves his boss, Rika, and Yamada loves Morita. It is an eternal stalemate where neither wants to give up loving their respective interests. The story sets up as Morita returning for a prolonged absence, whereupon he's going to have an art show he's not to thrilled about. In the end, he ends up getting some bad reviews as well as good ones, and an artwork of his his bought. Hagu is encouraged to enter an art competition, but in order to win, she must not enter her abstract works, and instead do a real-life painting.

Themes in this movie that run strong are the nostalgic memories of friendship and youth, as well as the pain and joy of first love. The movie as an artistic, nostalgic feel about it, which I believe was the director's goal. There are a lot of silent moments, accompanied by piano-playing music in the background, and slight bits of humor. The orginal manga is truly heart-warming and interesting. For me, although there are many fans of this movie, I believe it falls short, in some ways. It's still a good movie, but not exactly lively. However, I believe artist fans, and fans of the manga might enjoy it!

Honey and Clover is a live-action Japanese romantic comedy movie with English subtitles. A group of struggling art students eke out a hand-to-mouth life, barely making enough to eat and pay the rent; when an innocent nineteen-year-old girl with exceptional talent joins them, a complex love triangle ensues! A delightfully emotional story about the bonds of friendship, fickle whims of love, and the determination to achieve one's dream, Honey and Clover is a joy to watch and welcome addition to foreign film shelves. 116 minutes, color.

I didn't really expect anything fantastic due to the mixed reviews of this film. I watch a lot of anime, but had not seen this particular anime series before watching the film adaptation. Going into it blindly may have been for the better.

The film is a little long, and I understand that it does cut out quite a bit of content that the manga and the anime contained... but that is a sacrifice many manga and anime adaptations must make. The story involves five friends in University. They are a mix of art and design students that have interesting personalities. I found the characters very likable in their own way.

The story does revolve around the whole 'boy likes girl' and 'girl likes boy' themes, but it still manages to bring some new life into this tried and true film formula. There is a bit of light comedy, mostly in the first half of the film. The second half is a bit more dramatic, but all the ends tie up well.

I really do enjoy Japanese film, and one of the delights of modern Japanese film is getting a feel for the country and lifestyle. Though these could be University students anywhere, the settings do have a good Japanese feel.

I would definitely recommend this film for those who enjoy pretty straightforward, yet enjoyable young adult films. Though I am a few years past this age, I still had a nostalgic feeling.

I understand that if you read the manga or saw the anime first, you might be let down by the loss of a lot of content... but if you are a newbie to Honey and Clover, as I was, prepare for a very good film experience.
