Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book, which explores the theme of identity through the medium of film, an artform in which the performers one sees are not performing ‘themselves’ but are precisely acting out the parts of others, are precisely concealing their own identities behind a façade. The industry of Japanese cinema is prolific, inventive, and diverse. Japan produces quite its fair share of highly entertaining, highly commercial, and highly ?low brow? films. It also produces its fair share of nationalistic, traditionalistic, or even anachronistic films which in their own ways approach the issue of identity.

Keywords: identity; Japanese cinema
