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.

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

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

what really makes this film such an interesting piece of art is the animation style itself. Indeed, Masaaki Yuasa borrows from his previous work and really unapologetically allows himself to go in all the directions possible.

It is completely bonkers so it won't be for everyone but I enjoyed it.

Feb 25, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm not sure even Thomas Pynchon could have crafted this kind of fever dream scenario.

Jan 26, 2019 | Full Review…

It's everything, a movie about the bottomless energy of youth that itself possesses that energy and instills it in the viewer.
