Linda Linda Linda (リンダ リンダ リンダ?) is a 2005 Japanese film. Its name comes from Japanese punk band The Blue Hearts' hit song "Linda Linda". The film was directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita and stars Aki Maeda, Yu Kashii, and Shiori Sekine as the band members, and Bae Doona as a South Korean exchange student. The students' band, Paranmaum (Korean for "The Blue Hearts"), released a CD single in Japan and Korea entitled We Are Paranmaum.

The film is licensed for the US market by VIZ Media. A subtitled DVD was released on May 8, 2007.[1]


A group of high school girls have formed a band to perform at their high school cultural festival in three days' time, but the guitarist and singer have quit. The remaining members, Kei Tachibana (立花恵 Tachibana Kei?), Kyoko Yamada (山田 響子 Yamada Kyōko?), and Nozomi Shirakawa (白河望 Shirakawa Nozomi?), decide to perform covers of Blue Hearts songs, but need to find a new singer. They ask the first girl that walks by - Son (ソン?), a Korean exchange student who is not fluent in Japanese. The first day ends with all the girls working their hardest to learn their parts. Son practices at a karaoke parlor, and Kyoko talks to her crush, Kazuya Oe (大江一也 Ōe Kazuya?).

The next day, the girls begin practicing early at school; they are all new to their instruments. When they regroup after school, Kyoko arrives late and they miss their time slot. Kei calls her ex-boyfriend and manages arranges some practice time in a studio. They leave late at night to return to school, and continue practising through the rest of the night.

By the next morning, the band are on their way to performing well. As school begins, the girls go to their respective places to help out during the festival. Kei continues to practice her guitar parts and talks to one of her rocker friends, Takako. Son is supposed to be helping with the Japan/Korea Culture Exchange, but daydreams about the band. Kyoko is assumed to have gone back to selling crepes, and Nozomi falls asleep on her bass guitar in one of her teacher's classrooms.

By mid-afternoon, Kei and Kyoko wake up a reluctant Nozomi and fetch Son. Son rebuffs a classmate's confession of love. Over dinner at Nozomi's house, the girls persuade Koyko to talk to her crush Kazuya before the performance the next day. They end the night back at school, practicing until early morning.

On the day of the performance, the band decides to return to the studio and continue practicing. Exhausted, they fall asleep. Kei dreams about being celebrated and performing for the Ramones at the Budokan. The stage managers search for the band, but to no avail; to pass the time, their friends friends Takako and Moe perform impromptu music. Kei is woken by Kyoko's cellphone when Oe calls to ask where Kyoko is. The band rushes back to school in a taxi. Kyoko meets Kazuya while the band sets up, minutes before the performance. Kyoko finally arrives and the band performs two Blue Hearts songs, "Linda Linda" and "Owaranai Uta", to an excited crowd.



The soundtrack was released on July 20, 2005. The original instrumental tracks were composed by James Iha of The Smashing Pumpkins. The vocal tracks include Paranmaum (the band from the movie) singing covers of The Blue Hearts' songs Linda Linda, Boku no Migite (My Right Hand) and Owaranai Uta (Never Ending Song). There are also two songs by Base Ball Bear (the band Shiori Sekine belongs to in reality) played; they are Sayonara Nostalgia and April Mirage. These two songs can be heard playing in the "crêpe shop" scenes featuring Kyoko and Oe Kazuya. Shione Yukawa (who plays Moe Imamura in the movie) and Hanako (from the band me-ism) also perform a few songs on stage at the festival itself.
