Being who ‘you' are is not as easy as it seems!
20 November 2002 | by (Hamilton, Australia) – See all my reviews

I have been keeping a close eye on the rising career of Australian actress Rachel Griffiths. Of course she is best known in her role of Rhonda in the great Aussie film, ‘Muriel's wedding'. She certainly is talented, and continues to astound many TV and moviegoers around the world, who are captivated by what she can do onscreen. In the Aussie film ‘Me Myself I', Griffith's takes on a double role which she handles beautifully.

Pamela Drury is an attractive, intelligent thirty-something award winning Sydney journalist. Yet Pamela has missed the love boat, and is resigned to the odd porno flick and blind date. She could have had it all thirteen years ago, when she turned down ‘Mr. Right', Robert Dickson. On the edge of despair, Pamela literally collides with her other self - the Pamela who married Robert thirteen years ago - and comes complete with three kids, dog, goldfish and a white picket fence. When the married Pamela disappears, the career Pamela is left with the family she almost had, and the man she always wanted. As she struggles to cope with a family oblivious to the switch, she is challenged by poignant, humorous and ultimately enlightening experiences.

‘Me Myself I', is a film which you have to look at closely, to really enjoy. Its story while it might be simple to some degree has merit. The way we see Pamela go from one world to the next is quite good. The comparison to ‘Sliding Doors' is noticeable. Although it might not be as good as what Sliding Doors is, the way it uses the question of ‘what if?' in this story is pretty good. The director/Writer of ‘Me Myself I' was Pip Karmel. With Karmel, I got the feeling that she put some of her own life experiences into the story and in the character of Pamela. Pip has been a part of good movies such as Shine and Hearts in Atlantis.

There was a pretty good cast in this Australian movie. Griffith's is the standout performer in this one, as she takes on many facets to each side of her character. I like how we meet up with her two characters at the start and the end of the movie. Her husband Robert (David Roberts) was another interesting character. He really has to adjust to what the ‘other' Pamela is like. When he finds out what she wants, he is more than satisfied with her. Yet the young cast of the Dickson family was surprisingly good. I enjoy how the story focused on Stacey (Yael Stone), and how her mother helps her come to grips with womanhood. Then there is the funny scene with Douglas (Shaun Loseby), who is told in no uncertain manner that calling Mum a ‘dumb head' or the like is just not on. Yet the character of Rupert (Trent Sullivan) is most vital to the story, as he points out to the audience many times that he realises Pamela 2 is not his real mum. However, Pamela 2 does help him grow up immensely.

Outside of the Dickson family there are many interesting characters which we get to meet. The dinner scene is quite funny, as we get to see how sleazy a guy Geoff (Felix Williamson) really is, and that the other Pamela is as unfaithful as her own husband is. Then there is the character of Ben, who has taken a liking to Pamela 2. Pamela is strongly attracted to Ben (Sandy Winton), and she can not control her feelings towards him either.

This then leads me to the important lessons that this movie points out to its audience. The question of ‘What If?' is of great significance all the way through out the film, as Pamela 2 is thinking that at one stage ‘Why did I let you go?' in reference to Robert. Then in the blink of an eye, Pamela 2 is placed into the very situation that she thought she had lost 13 years ago. I am sure that we have all wondered at one stage or another, how a different decision might have effected our future. ‘Me Myself I' also asks other questions like ‘what is more important, a family or career?'. In the fantasy world that this film is set in, Pamela 2 gets to experience the best of both worlds. Then there is the idea of love and relationships. Pam and Robert both talk of how difficult their relationship/marriage has and continues to be. Pamela 2 also shows what effect a ‘risk' can or could have had on her life if she enters into a relationship or not. The rewards certainly outweigh the risks that were presented to her.

In conclusion, this was a very enjoyable film to watch, and while Rachel Griffiths has done many small-time films that we have probably all overlooked, she is one actress who demands that people take notice of. After seeing ‘Me Myself I', it has made me appreciate this Aussie gals talents all the more. I will continue to look out for her with keen interest in her upcoming movie roles. ‘Me Myself I' allows us all to look at who we really are, the ‘individual' that is inside us all. The finale to this one is a great look at just that. I also like the new remix on the song ‘Me Myself I', which was performed by Marie Wilson. Take the ‘risk' when you are next looking for a good Aussie film and view ‘Me Myself I'. You will kick yourself if you don't!

CMRS gives ‘Me Myself I': 4 (Very Good Film)
