I AM WHAT I AM (2023) Japan Cuts 2023

One of the joys of this year’s Japan Cuts is the story of a young woman who doesn’t want any sort of romance and just wants to be. She has no romantic feelings for anyone, nor does she want any sort of romance.

Wonderful character portrait is a look at a woman who simply wants to find her own path and life on a road that most people don’t want to travel.

Toko Miura is perfectly cast as Katsumi. Through her excellent work we come to understand what she’s feeling and why that is totally okay (despite what her mom thinks)

This is a joyous celebration of humanity in all its forms and highly recommended. One of my favorite films at Japan Cuts and 2023.
