Editorial Reviews

Based on the popular manga by Ai Yazawa, NANA follows the adventures of two girls both named Nana. While they share the same name, they couldn't be more different. Nana "Hachi" Komatsu follows her boyfriend to Tokyo in hopes to make a new start, while Nana Osaki, who arrives in the city at the same time, is a punk rock beauty who has an ambition to make it big in the world of rock and roll. Although these two young women come from different backgrounds, they quickly become best friends.

Format: DVD
This is a coming of age story set around two 20-year-old women living in Tokyo, trying to find themselves in a world of possiblities and all the while learning about love and their own limitations. I must say that after watching this film on a long journey home from a year abroad, I found the story very relatable and poignant.
I read one of the reviews and I have to set the record straight and divulge my own opinion because I do not agree in the slightest to the accusation that women are portrayed as submissive, and if you watch this film I am sure you will agree it is quite the opposite! For people who have not already seen this movie and are planning to, there might be some spoilers ahead (but what I have to say might just sway you into wanting to pick up a copy).
First off, Osaki Nana (played be Mika) is incredibly strong! She copes silently with the pain of having let go of the love of her life in order to pursue her own life goals, and in that way is courageous. She is never demonized for her decision, and in fact is respected for her talent, tenacity, confidence, and strong will to succeed through writing her own music (rather than riding the coat-tails of her successful boyfriend who sold-out to a pop band!)
By nature, the other Nana played by Aoi is more naive about the ways of life and through inexperience, believes that a woman should sacrifice for her beau, only to discover through later heartbreak that she would like to make her own mark on the world and admires the other Nana for having found her true calling. I highly recommend seeing NANA for yourself and if you visit the fansite, you can view trailers and clips.
In addition, I find the cinematography and time-sequencing of shots effectively communicates a story of innocence with an adult edge.

Okay, I haven't read the manga this is based on so I don't know how accurately it follows the storyline. However, I really liked this movie. It's about two girls who both share the name Nana but are very very different. There is Nana played by Aoi Miyazaki who is cute, needy, and a bit immature. Then there is the singer Nana played by Mika Nakashima (a singer in real life) who is a fiercely independent member of a rock band trying to work her way up to fame. They end up living together and learn and grow from each other. Some people may find it frustrating that Miyazaki's character can be so timid and weak or how her romantic relationship is dealt with. However, I think it is essential when watching this movie to know that this is in a different culture and so the gender roles are slightly different. Keeping that in mind, this is a great story about two drastically different girls' close friendship.

I am not really into j-movies but one of my friends recommended this movie. I love this film! such a great cast as well. I became a fan of Aoi Miyazaki she is such a talented actress- I think one of the reasons why this film rocks is because of Aoi and her smile which tugs the core of the heart. The chemistry between Mika and Aoi is incredible that while watching the movie you can feel their sorrow and difficulties.. The scenes between these two characters are very well done without going over the top or dramatic.. The Nana 2 is a let down because Aoi is not in the cast anymore..her presence was truly missed..

The soundtrack is so cool! (mind you I don't speak a word of japanese, but I love the j-alternative type of music in the film.)

NANA (2005) is a live-action Japanese movie based on a popular manga series which has also been turned into an animated series. It's about two girls named Nana, both aged 20, who wind up as roommates in Tokyo, after having moved there from small towns many hours away. As romantic and career tribulations swirl around them, their friendship grows deeper as they come to rely on each other for sustenance. One, nicknamed "Hachi" (puppy dog) by the other, is all bright eyes, big smiles and good cheer, full of romantic dreams. The other Nana is a dark, moody girl rocker with a sardonic approach to life who hides her pain under a "cool" façade.

It's a sweet, gentle, touching drama with quite a different tone from the more frenetic manga and somewhat less frenetic anime series. The movie takes selected scenes from the first five volumes of the manga, leaves out quite a bit, and tells the story in a very different order. Still, there's no reason fans can't enjoy all three--manga, anime and movie, particularly since the lead actresses playing the two Nanas in the movie are so perfectly cast, capturing the quirks, charms, and essential appeal (and annoying tics, as well) of the manga characters. Former model Aoi Miyazaki plays Hachi--all big eyes, blinding smiles and a parade of very cute fashions--while J-rock star Mika Nakashima plays the rocker Nana with more of a punk style--glaring eyes, dark makeup, jagged jewelry, multiple piercings, leather jacket and an ever-present cigarette between her fingers. The actresses show great chemistry with each other, far more than they do with the actors playing their boyfriends.
