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.Read more ›
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.)
I think that all of us wish that we had a platonic friend who cared for us absolutely without expecting something return. People who are interested in any of the subjects of friendship, Japan, Japanese culture, all would like this film. Overall a beautiful movie.

I really enjoyed this movie version. All though I would really have liked Anna Tsuchiya as Nana and Olivia Lufkin as Reira. Still the movie was a good version.Published on September 20, 2013 by Nancy Degollado
