  1. Samuel Wells's rating of the film Nana

    This film begins with a vivacity that draws you in. I hunted to find meaning in each moment of the first half of the film, ecstatic with the aloofness that the director presents to us. As the film progresses and becomes more concerned with the progression of plot, it stumbles and runs out of energy. A certain miss, despite some great efforts and and good eye by Valerie Massadian.

  3. laurax's rating of the film Nana

    4.5 actually. Beautifully filmed with a stationary camera. The story unfolds slowly and with a mysterious element running through it. Interesting POV from Nana.

  4. Morgan Ellerbrake's rating of the film Nana

    Very foreign... many questions left unanswered. It's almost better not to ask at all, becoming (for me) essential to the appreciation of this film. Or perhaps asking without expecting an answer. Beautifully portrays life in its most beautiful, most peaceful, most tragic, and rawest of ways in a short 68 minutes. This child actress is a really special person, which becomes apparent. Good film for a change of pace.

  5. Christian's rating of the film Nana

    voyeuristic shots of raw country living. why small children in stoic environments end up very capable.

  6. John Tuohy's rating of the film Nana

    NANA worked for me even though I had to back it up twice to see if I had missed something. I hasn't. Throughout the film I was reminded of another film called PONETTE (1997) by Jacques Dillon. "Ponette" is another 4 year old girl who loses her mother in a car accident. The films are very much alike.

  7. James Demitriou's rating of the film Nana

    Poor film! I'll put the animal torture to the side. There is no detail to the mother whether she abadons the child, if she has gone crazy or if she is dead! Or is it one of them films where you have to sleep on it or watch twice to get it! Cant be bothered to watch again.

  8. Aeoliak's rating of the film Nana

    esta niñita me ha cautivado.

  9. Feng Ling's rating of the film Nana

    although it sometimes get tiring to hear rhetoric that just reduces to "save the children," the innocence leaked in this film probably justifies it.

  10. Stormy Brady's rating of the film Nana

    Such a touching film, I'm in love with this little one! I enjoy the pace of this, it gave me an opportunity to slow down my thoughts and enjoy raw simplicity, beautifully shot. If you're faint of heart may be a little much.

  11. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Nana

    It starts with badness towards animals? WTF? I thought they might slip it in later. I didn't even make it 5 minutes into the movie before I tapped out.

  13. John Matrix's rating of the film Nana

    Beautiful & simple. NANA seems content to make its audience bear witness to a slowly unfolding tragedy. No substantial questions are posed or answered. Several times Nana's existence is likened to that of a pig doomed for slaughter, an animal that cannot comprehend its fate or the forces that determine it. As a quiet, patient portrait of a mother's despair and the unexpected resilience of a child, NANA works.

  15. Elfsoap's rating of the film Nana

    As an urban person very far from where the sausage is made; I found the farmer relation to the pigs interesting. Found myself relating to Nana in her various relations with animals in the film. Endearing. I think the description and the other reviews give you a clear enough picture regarding if Nana would be an enjoyable watch for you.

  16. Leco's rating of the film Nana

    I don't think that the length of the movie helped its development: as the stark minimalism surrounds us, maybe pointing out that we should concentrate on Nana and Nana only, I'd say it's fairly easy surrendering to boredom. Fortunately, I've broken this barrier and got myself a decent enough twist. The answers we do not have, leaving us alone to our own thoughts, are this film's greatest asset.

  17. Clove's rating of the film Nana

    In a way I've only seen done by Tsai Ming-liang, Massadian manages in a taut 60 minutes a film that is somehow both powerfully evocative and indulgently, gorgeously soporific. As if, by holding liminal space, one can come to sense what surrounds it. Did she find the child, then write the film? Or is casting just full of perfectly charming, independent, capable, headstrong, brave and lovely four year old French girls?

  18. msmichel's rating of the film Nana

    Remarkable first feature from director Valerie Massadian that captures the world from the perspective of a 4 year old girl living rurally in France with a single mother. Slight but poignant with an endearing and involving turn by wee Kelyna Lecomte. The still camera adds a certain verisimilitude to the images captured. Bears promise.

  19. Ted Thompson's rating of the film Nana

    A child who acts like a child in the world. Hard to tell where the 'story' begins or if the story is the child, in the film in the world

  20. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Nana

    French Nothing-Core with a simple self-allegorical story and very cute petit actrice!

  21. o_oo's rating of the film Nana
