From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game) comes The Night is Short, Walk on Girl, a wildly inventive and visually dazzling animated comedy about one epic night in Kyoto.
“Exhilarating … so packed with inventive detail that fans will need repeat viewings.” – Kim Newman, Screen Daily
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 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. (Dir. by Masaaki Yuasa, 2017, Japan, in Japanese with English subtitles, 92 mins., Rated PG-13)
