Critic Reviews for Nana
A spoonful of fashion helps the feminism go down in Nana, a delightful pop fairy tale that speaks to young women in the language of sisterhood and self-direction.
Despite the gritty urban setting, there are episodes of Gilmore Girls that have more 'edge.'
The film is most impressive as that rarest of creatures: a crowd-pleaser with a genuinely artistic touch.
Audience Reviews for Nana
Im not going to lie...never saw the anime or whatever..but it carries well as a movie on its own! ^^
Marvelous drama adapted by the Manga comic book in a chance encounter between two girls of the same name, "Nana", triggers a series of events and relationships. I haven't read the comic book yet so I see the story is as interesting and the emotional scenes are pretty touching. Mika Nakashima was great at expressing her voice as the singer and Aoi Miyazaki was the perfect Hachi, looked so cute and innocent young woman. At the end, it's the friendship and comradeship between the two girls that gives this Japanese movie an uplifting, feel-good ending.
Two very different 20 year old women meet on a train to Tokyo. Other than the fact they're both named Nana, they have very different pasts and personalities. Despite this, they're destined to become very big parts of each other's lives. Based on the very popular anime and manga of the same name, this is a fun adaption. The musical aspects of the story are kept, and are as nearly as important to the story as the relationship between the two Nana's. Speaking of, the actresses chosen to play the two title characters are great, and the story is as interesting for guys as it is the girls who are the original audience. NANA was a good movie, I liked it. Obviously it's more recommended for people who are already familiar with the source material, but even NANA newbies should enjoy this.
