"A Sensation in Japanese Youth Culture."

¡®¡¯NANA¡¯¡¯, The Movie- the long-awaited big screen adaptation of Ai Yazawa¡¯s best-selling girl¡¯s comic! ¡®¡¯NANA¡¯¡¯, The Manga, still serialized in Japan¡¯s most popular weekly comic, magazine ¡®¡¯Cookie,¡± has caused a sensation in Japanese youth culture. - Tokyo Broadcasting System, Inc.


I do understand that it is difficult to make a movie, which is based on the original story, especially best-selling comic. Mika Nakashima and Aoi Miyazaki play two main characters, both characters share same name Nana, play their role perfectly. Both actors¡¯ fashion and behavior is exactly the same as characters in a comic. I am wondering if there are plans for a sequel. - Naomi Nakayama

¡®¡¯ I do understand the comic Nana has a huge fan base, so when I shot the film, I felt like that I represent one of big fans of Nana.¡± Kentaro Otani said,¡± I will not betray Nana¡¯s fans¡¯ expectation.¡¯¡¯

About the story
NANA is a story about two very different girls both named NANA. Nana Osaki is an aspiring vocalist for the punk/rock band named Black Stones. Blessed with a mysterious beauty and an unwavering pride, she is the stronger NANA both in love and in life. Nana Komatsu, on the other hand, is a cheery happy-go-lucky girl coming from a warm family. Her naiveness and childlike behaviors attract other characters to her. Her love life, however, is a constant soap-opera linking one boyfriend to the next.
