YesAsia Editorial Description

Though Nada Sou Sou, a.k.a. Tears For You, is only his sophomore film, Doi Nobuhiro already has impressive credentials, having directed classic TV dramas Beautiful Life and Good Luck!! and 2004's blockbuster tearjerker Be With You. This time, the director strikes another winning formula by teaming up with heartthrob Tsumabuki Satoshi (Spring Snow, Waterboys), he of the smile that launched a thousand sighs, and popular young actress Nagasawa Masami (Crying Out Love, In the Center of the World) for the longingly beautiful Nada Sou Sou. The film opened in the No. 1 spot in Japan, grossing 390 million yen in just its first weekend, and stayed in the top three of the box office for five consecutive weeks. In addition, Tsumabuki and Nagasawa received Japanese Academy Award nominations for Best Leading Actor and Best Leading Actress.

Nada Sou Sou is a familiar title to Japanese moviegoers, as the film is inspired by the immensely popular same-titled Okinawan dialect song. Originally sung by BEGIN and Moriyama Ryoko and later covered by Natsukawa Rimi, Nada Sou Sou is now considered one of Okinawa's representative anthems. The song's lyrics are about memories of an older brother, and the film takes off from this premise, detailing the evolving relationship between Yotaro (Tsumabuki Satoshi) and his stepsister Kaoru (Nagasawa Masami). Aso Kumiko (The Uchuoten Hotel) and Koizumi Kyoko (Kuchu Teien) co-star as Yotaro's girlfriend Keiko and Kaoru's mother, respectively. Director Doi makes ample use of the photogenic island setting and talented cast, injecting Nada Sou Sou with a nostalgic atmosphere, leisurely pace, and tender story that will linger long in the viewer's hearts.

Professional Review of "Nada Sou Sou (DVD) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

July 23, 2007

This professional review refers to Nada Sou Sou (AKA: Tears For You) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Masami Nagasawa, star of Crying Out Love in the Center of the World, returns to the "Pure Love" genre with Tears for You, a film inspired by Rimi Natsukawa's hit song Nada Sou Sou. Directed by Nobuhiro Doi, Tears for You is a love story about two step-siblings, Yota (Satoshi Tsumabuki) and Kaoru (Nagasawa). Long ago, Yota's mother (Kyoko Koizumi) married Kaoru's jazz-playing father (Tatsuya Nakamura), effectively merging the two families. Unfortunately, Kaoru's father skipped town, and Yota's mother passed away, but not before imparting a dying wish to her young son to take care of Kaoru. In the meantime, the two young children were raised by Yota's grandmother on a small island off the coast of Okinawa. When Yota came of age, he took on a role not just as a brother but as a surrogate father of sorts for Kaoru, always working long hours on any number of jobs in order to support his sister's education.

The film picks up with Kaoru moving in with Yota on Okinawa after some time apart, and from the first time he sees her, Yota is clearly smitten, although he keeps his feelings under wraps. Kaoru is excited to see him as well, although visibly troubled when she learns of Yota's med school girlfriend, Keiko (Kumiko Aso). Yota has hopes of opening a restaurant one day, and as fate would have it, a local businessman gives him an opportunity to realize his dreams. Unfortunately, things are not what they seem, and everything in Yota's life goes from bad to worse in terms of both his finances and his relationship with Keiko. His backbreaking work ethic in support of Kaoru's future becomes a bone of contention between the two step-siblings, as well as their emerging, clearly romantic feelings for one another.

Love stories hinge on the chemistry between their two leads, and both Tsumabuki and Nagasawa do a serviceable job as would-be lovers, but both performances are somewhat problematic in execution. Although likeable enough, Tsumabuki doesn't seem to be able to handle the emotional scenes, as it always looks as if he's going to laugh even when he's breaking down in tears. Nagasawa - so good in Crying Out Love in the Center of the World and Touch - is so over-exuberant (perhaps intentionally so) in the initial parts of the film that she's more of a grating presence than an endearing one. However, Nagasawa's performance improves considerably as the more dramatic aspects of the plot kick into overdrive.

The main problem with Tears for You is that in trying to adhere to the "Pure Love" aesthetic, the filmmakers completely gloss over the complications that could arise from a blossoming romantic relationship between these step-siblings by purposely avoiding the issue at any cost. To put it bluntly, the ending is a complete cop-out, as it completely sidesteps any sort of serious examination of the messy, complicated, but entirely sincere feelings between Yota and Kaoru by throwing in a typical tearjerker ending out of literally nowhere.

On the bright side, this sad turn of events is almost salvaged by Kaoru's subsequent beachside chat with Yota's elderly grandmother, a scene that demonstrates Masami Nagasawa's more than capable acting chops. Unfortunately, however, there is a second ending, which is perhaps necessary in terms of narrative cohesion, but is so emotionally lacking considering the already heartbreaking content of the previous scene. It almost seems as if the filmmakers were aware of how unsatisfying this ending was, as they include a coda after the end credits as a way to perhaps hedge their bets.

Whatever the case, Tears for You is pretty much an example of how strict adherence to a genre as formulaic as "Pure Love" can undermine the complexity of the very characters presented in the film. Whether the resolution is happy or sad is irrelevant; it's really a case of whether the filmmakers really have the guts to tackle an issue head-on without resorting to cheap tragedies to amp up the melodrama. As harsh as that comment may sound, I must reemphasize that I don't think Tears for You is a bad film, it just seems like a wasted opportunity, considering the more complicated romantic relationship depicted in the film as well as the always welcome appearance of an actress as compelling as Masami Nagasawa. By story's end, Tears for You might just make you cry a little - partly due to the events of the film, but more likely for what could have been.

A Wonderful Sad Film! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I've been wanting to write a review for this wonderful and sad film for a while. This movie flows smoothly and the actings by both actor and actress were superb. They should deserve whatever awards that they were nominated for because they were excellent. I don't remember there was any moment of pretense or awkwardness that sometimes you get from watching other movies or drama series. The only thing that looks not realistic is probably the episode of the tree ruining Kaoru's house. I don't agree with the professional reviewer's comment that the ending is a cheap typical tearjerker. I suppose it depends on your experience. I remember when I was a kid, my cousin who is much older than me brought home this very handsome young man who looked melancholic even when he smiled. Years later my cousin told me that he died prematurely because he was strickenly poor. The actor just reminded me of this person. I just feel so sad about his fate. I suppose the director of this film is from the older generation when Japan was much poorer and the way people behaved in society were much selfless and self sacrificing in general. I think the way the director was dealing with the emotion or love between the actor and actress was just the right amount because in a reserved society, emotions were much less expressed. So, watch this film! It is highly recommended!

And this is to Kevin Kennedy: Thanks for recommending this wonderful film! I'm looking forward to your breaking the 500 reviews milestone! :)

Bittersweet Okinawan treat Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"Nada Sou Sou" is a powerfully moving story about familial love and loyalty. It is rare to see the loving relationship of step-siblings explored in such detail.

Tsumaguki Satoshi, as Yota, delivers a wonderful performance as the super-responsible big brother, Yota. In less skilled hands, Yota might seem too good to be true; Mr. Tsumaguki makes his perseverance believable. Nagasawa Masami, as little sister Kaoru, has a role in which she grows from a childish teenager to a maturing young woman. Her opening scenes are a bit rough because she tries to show Kaoru's immaturity through loud and shrill behavior. After those opening scenes, however, she is startlingly good at revealing the complex emotions of her character.

The Okinawan milieu of the film charms the viewer with its warmth and beauty. The film's unexpected ending will leave you with tears in your eyes. Natsukawa Rimi's lovely rendition of the song "Nada Sou Sou" provides the perfect coda to this involving film. Very highly recommended.

True Uchinanchu Story Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Being Okinawan, I guess the story of children who lose their parents is part of history since recovery from the war. The islands have kept our pride so high. Nada Sou Sou was written by BEGIN who is soley an Okinawan music group. They not only wrote the music for Nada Sou Sou, they also wrote the song for Sanshin no Hana. The dvd was excellent. The shots of Okinawa were beautiful. The elderly women in the market were definitely native Okinawan with their southern Japanese accents. And although the actor and actress are from Honshu, they did a great job playing the roles of brother and sister. Japan is so vastly different from Okinawa, it was an inspiration for me to see this film. Okinawans are warm and kind people with hearts that survived the invasions. This story touches on tears in front of the ocean, an iconic view for Okinawan mothers who awaited the return of their sons in the Japanese military after the war. So many did this and none returned. But the story portrays the island side, close families, workers who help each other out and restaurants as the main driving force of income in Okinawa. All so real in today's island. I loved this movie, and yes I teared watching it. I can only say that if you watch this movie, you may understand why we are warm and loving people. Why Nada Sou Sou broke new grounds in Japan, and why Japan is fascinated the hidden cultures in Okinawa they never knew about.
