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.

Critic Reviews for The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (1)

A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision - wherever it leads.

August 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

November 1, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

October 17, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

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.

October 11, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

A film with reminders that you should have clean your room yet also a film about cherishing the highs and lows of youth.

August 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The term "fever dream" is often used to describe animation like Yuasa's, but it's rarely so apt as it is here.
