A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision - wherever it leads.
It's everything, a movie about the bottomless energy of youth that itself possesses that energy and instills it in the viewer.
It's delightful, delirious, delicious madness that perfectly captures the breathless euphoria of falling in love and the first time you truly realize just how scary and wonderful it is.
Lovers of anime are going to love this, and they have every reason to do so. This one packs a chockful of laughs in many places, and it's one of the more inventive animated films of the year.
Featuring a strong woman as a rebuff to traditional anime issues, it [Night is Short, Walk On Girl ] serves as a funny and fancy romantic narrative.
That unrestrained surrealism and willingness to surprise the audience with something new at every turn is why Masaaki Yuasa is one of the best filmmakers around.
At the very least it's presented with vigor and confidence in a manner which keeps our eyes peeled for more from the talented filmmaker.
This is not for the casual animation fan, nor is for someone necessarily looking to connect with the main characters; it cares about the sum rather than individual parts, but that's kind of okay.
A film with reminders that you should have clean your room yet also a film about cherishing the highs and lows of youth.
The term "fever dream" is often used to describe animation like Yuasa's, but it's rarely so apt as it is here.
It will leave some people scratching their heads, understandably...but this is pure inventiveness and creativity.
Frankly, it takes enough effort just to keep up with the pretty colours.
