I absolutely adore this film. I bought it simply because I had seen Ryuhei Matsuda in Blue Spring and wanted to see what kind of acting range he had (note: not a lot, quiet and moody is pretty much it) and what I found was a wonderful story about friendship, love and growing up. As someone who doesn't speak Japanese, I cannot comment on the overall acting skills of the cast, but the look and feel of the characters just fit perfectly.
A film for the girls - romance, fashion, friendship, but also a film for the boys - cute japanese girls in short skirts!!
There's an anime out that is based on this film that carries on the story, and I've also heard rumours about a NANA 2, which I am desperate to see.
