Movie Info

Night is Short, Walk on Girl takes place over the course of one strange and alcohol-drenched night, as a young woman known only as The Girl With Black Hair drinks her way through Kyoto. Along the way she encounters a panoply of odd and fantastical characters, all the while crisscrossing paths with senior student Senpai, who creates increasingly contrived reasons to run into her in an effort to win her heart. Winner of the Grand Prize at Ottawa Animation Festival, Night is Short, Walk on Girl is an "I guess it's romantic?" comedy for the modern age, and a celebration of the unconventional, confusing routes that love and life can take.

[A] Cocktail of fascinating images... [Full review in Spanish]

The whole thing is a postmodern trip, with animation styles varying greatly to fit the mood: bright pop art colours, dark Rembrandt tones and everything in between.

March 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

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

A restless mixture of inventive animation and over-elaborate storytelling set over a single long night in Kyoto.

October 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | 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.
