My Sorry Life

Drama, LGBTQ 1h 35m 2021


TV producer Kei (Maki Fujiwara) and her recently retired comedian boyfriend Yoshi (Akiyoshi Okayasu) are working to conceive their first child as they consider marriage approaching mid-thirties—a process complicated by the fact that Kei has continued taking contraceptives. Annoyed by Yoshi relaxing into domestic life and slacking off at his part-time job, Kei has finally worked around her male colleagues’ obstruction to spearhead an innovative web series guest hosted by rotating everyday people. She invites Shiori (Yukino Murakami), a young trans man working for her office’s delivery service and moonlighting as a bartender at an LGBTQ-inclusive space, to kick off the program. However, as Kei pushes forward, she reaches a breaking point. A provocative critique of sex and gender, Kozue Nomoto’s feature debut follows her acclaimed shorts including From the Bottom of the Vortex, winner of the Grand Prize at the Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
