‘She Is Me, I Am Her’: A masterful portrayal of pandemic life

Quick Summary

Actor Nahana delivers powerful performances as four different characters in Mayu Nakamura’s omnibus film about the loneliness of the pandemic.

The reason is something of a mystery, though one factor is doubtless visual: Actors talking through masks are not exactly cinematic.

So Mayu Nakamura’s “She Is Me, I Am Her,” a four-part omnibus film that makes the isolation and loneliness of the pandemic its central theme, is an outlier, and a welcome one at that.
