Did You Know?

Trivia

In the story, since both main characters have the same first name, to differentiate one Nana to the other, Nana Osaki affectionately called Nana Komatsu "Hachi", because she thinks Nana Komatsu behaves like a dog, faithful but sometimes annoying. This is actually a play of word. The female name "Nana" is a homonym of the Japanese word "nana" that means "seven", and while "Hachi" is a common dog name in Japan, it is also a homonym of the word "hachi" that means "eight".

Goofs

When Nobu is playing his tape to Nana the first time, you can clearly hear a bass guitar in the song. This is not possible at that time since Ren left for Tokio long before that and Shin wasn't in the band yet. See more »

Disappointed
26 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

so many problems where to start...too many story lines, no clear protagonist, voice-over that didn't add to the story, a subplot with the boyfriend that should've been cut and then it'd have been better and shorter,the lesbian subtext between the two nanas, no clear goal for nana the rocker. and most of the time nana non-rocker is like the best friend who somehow has her own movie though it's still the main actress' movie.

im sure the free flow of scenes works well in manga form and it seems a lot of the manga fans also enjoyed the movie, but for lovers of movies in general, i found this to be meandering and aimless and slow. it's a shame because there's a lot of acting talent here in ryuhei matsuda who was excellent in renai shasshin.

unlike others, i found the look of the film very muted and boring. it reminded me a lot of love letter down to the snow scenes and music, but that movie was better.
