For those who lives around the Asia-Pacific region, you should not be surprised that this movie is already in all major cinemas and it was first shown in Japan in December'09. It opened in Singapore 2 thursdays ago and so far the review from the newspapers is positive.

For me, the movie is more like an extended addiction for me as it continues the story after the drama which was first aired in 2006 followed by a 2 part 2 hour special. In fact, it can be said that this movie is like an extension of the 2 hour special and they need to earn the cash to justify the on location shooting in Paris, Wien and Prague.

To be frank, although I liked how the story progressed from the the special, I was a bit disappointed in the sense that the sub plots that the director created wasn't well concluded. I couldn't describe more as it may spoil your viewing pleasure. However, it may be answered in the 2nd part of the movie which will be in cinemas in April (Hooray!!).

As usual, Nodame is at her crazy best but I thought the effects for some scenes was worse as compared to the drama. In conclusion, although I fully enjoyed the movie, I felt that it can be done even better. But Nodame Cantabile fans shouldn't miss this movie AT ALL!

Go catch it at a cinema near you!
