It’s Me, It’s Me
“It’s Me, It’s Me.”– Based on a popular Japanese contemporary novel, director Miki wrote the script himself, opting for an original, spellbinding ending that makes full use of the art. Realistic, surreal, funny and unnerving, this film will swallow you up in unfathomable suspense.
A casual scam triggers a surreal series of events, which turns everyone into “ME,” who eventually turns on each other. This fantastical tale of “selfmultiplication” will be made into a ﬁlm by Satoshi Miki ("Adrift in Tokyo"('08), "Instant Swamp"('09) who has made his mark with his original worldview that renders his works a world of its own, which is known as “the Miki World.” Kazuya Kamenashi of a popular boy-band, KAT-TUN, will star as the protagonist, Hitoshi, who is at ﬁrst disoriented in the world that is inhabited by so many Hitoshis, yet unexpectedly finds the uncomplicated relationships among “himselves” quite comfortable.
I am Hitoshi, aged 28. One day, I encounter another me. That Hitoshi tells me that he has actually met another Hitoshi, the week before. It looks like everyone turns into "ME". Before I know it, the world is filled with "ME" at a staggering speed. And in time, all these "MEs" start deleting other "MEs".
Director's Profile : Satoshi Miki
Miki has created a world all his own (known as “the Miki World”) with his original perspective in his highly entertaining films, which have earned him high critical acclaim internationally including "Adrift in Tokyo," "Instant Swamp," and "In The Pool."
Miki started off his career as a TV writer while still in college. He has written and produced TV drama, variety shows, films and plays, establishing his position as a popular writer with numerous hits under his belt, such as Jiko Keisatsu（Time Limit Investigator）. His works gradually derail from reality, peppered with dialogues and stage settings that are typically permeated with his quirky sense of humor, often described as “disarming (datsuryoku-kei)” and “laid-back (yuru-kei)” frequently refers to Monty Python styled comedy.
