Movie Info

From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Adventure Time's "Food Chain") comes The Night is Short, Walk On Girl, a comedy about one epic night in Kyoto. As a group of teens go out for a night on the town, a sophomore known only as "The Girl with Black Hair" experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife... all the while unaware of the romantic longings of Senpai, a fellow student who has been creating increasingly fantastic and contrived reasons to run into her, in an effort to win her heart.

A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision - wherever it leads.

By the final act in this film, the randomness coalesces into something philosophical

October 13, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It features lots of walking and talking and drinking, and occasional screechy rock interludes. Like a Richard Linklater movie, in other words. Only less fun.

October 5, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It is romantic and hallucinogenic, with an edge of softcore erotic sleaze.

October 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A vivid, batty, whirlwind of a film in Masaaki Yuasa's wildly imaginative style...
