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.

It does reach a point of madcap overload where the underlying tongue-tied boy-girl relationship gets somewhat lost, but for those willing to go with its woozy, instinctive and unpredictable trajectory, there's a memorable night out in store.

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