Critic Reviews for Haruko Azumi Is Missing (Japanese Girls Never Die)(Azumi Haruko wa yukue fumei)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Japanese Girls Never Die is an impressionistic, kaleidoscopic portrait of life as a woman in modern-day Japan, with a little bit of art-world satire to boot.

This vibrant, energetic film simultaneously manages to be pop-art, edgy social critique, and a strangely moving prayer for all the gone girls.

Top Critic

This isn't simply a call for revolution, with female characters also troubled by the violence of the gangs, but it's an invitation to do some serious thinking, and it's presented with energy and style.

Blending magic realism, pop art moxie, and humane storytelling, director Daigo Matsui delivers a dreamy feminist critique of modern Japanese culture.

Gorgeous and thoughtful, at first impressionistic in its series of vignettes until the pieces join together to form a very compelling whole.

Jul 17, 2017 | Full Review…

As Haruka, Yu Aoi provides a stabilizing force for a film in constant danger of succumbing to its own giddiness.
