A Girl Missing (Yokogao) Reviews

July 31, 2020
A low-key showcase for Fukada's returning collaborator Mariko Tsutsui.
July 31, 2020
There's a strong performance at the center that keeps it moving as Fukada rations out the story twists, but what's missing here is a radical restructuring of a frustrating screenplay.

Only by paying close attention to the lead character's changing hairstyle and wardrobe can we follow the story's convoluted crescendo of thwarted passion and unadulterated rage.

There's no denying the seductive powers of A Girl Missing, which gestures at the rot beneath the surface of politesse... Yet [director Kji] Fukada loses sight of his own blind spots and his own intentions in the process.

You'll be so busy trying to piece the plot together that you won't have time to question how little sense some of it makes.

A disappointing and unmoving drama of how a good woman's life is shattered by keeping quiet.
