THE NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL | 夜は短し歩けよ乙女

Masaaki Yuasa, 2017 / 93 mins / 18A / Japanese with English subtitles

Winner of the Best Film at the Ottawa Animation Festival, Masaaki Yuasa’s (Lu Over the Wall, Mind Game) adaptation of Tomihiko Morimi’s bestseller focuses on a love-struck male university student, and his hapless crush on “The Girl With Black Hair”. Hoping to confess his feelings he follows her as she wanders through the mysterious and dream-like Kyoto night and the two experience a myriad of eccentric encounters.

Yuasa’s distinctive animation style and a witty script – blending both childish and adult humour – evoke a warm, whimsical and hallucinogenic adventure.

第20回山本周五郎賞受賞、第137回直木賞候補、2007年本屋大賞第2位、累計売上130万部を超えるベストセラーとなっている人気作家・森見登美彦作品で、黒髪の乙女に思いを寄せる冴えない大学生の物語をユーモラスに描いた同名小説を映画化。1年前から同じクラブの後輩「黒髪の乙女」に恋心を抱く大学生の「先輩」は、なるべく彼女の目に留まることを目的とした「ナカメ作戦」を実行していた。そんな2人それぞれが不思議で奇妙な長い夜を過ごす恋愛ファンタジー。役者としても大人気のシンガーソングライターの星野源が、先輩の声を担当。
