Haruko (played by Hana and Alice’s Yu Aoi) is stuck in a rut. Rapidly hurtling towards her 30s, she’s stuck in a dead-end job. She has fallen for her eccentric neighbour Soga, but he constantly rebuffs any affection she shows. One day, Haruko mysteriously disappears without a trace. A wanted poster featuring her face catches the attention of Manabu and Yukio, two wannabe graffiti artists. On a whim, they create a stencil of the poster and start spraying it onto walls around the town. They’re soon joined by the giddy 20-year-old Aina, and within days the trio have unexpectedly transformed Haruko’s image into a pop culture phenomenon. Meanwhile, a group of roving schoolgirls is being blamed for a series of random attacks on young men in the area... Japanese Girls Never Die is a strange and wonderful examination of modern Japanese youth. Its characters are full life and energy, but are also frustrated and directionless. Adapting a popular novel, director Daigo Matsui has created a lively and surprising piece of work that casually leaps back and forth between a number of different subplots while refusing to conform to genre norms. The visuals are vibrant, the music is great, and the film regularly subverts expectations. Matsui takes a risk in revealing some key story details from the off, but it pays off: trying to put all the pieces together is one of the great pleasures of this extremely inventive and confident film.
