"Masks [...] has three main characters: a photographer, his blond girlfriend and a Japanese woman, Kimi. Masks, faces, photographs, beauty vs. ugliness vs. art are explored in the film in an attempt to come to terms with what they mean for the characters. Appearance and reality are played with and against each other through the editing and the nature of the film medium itself."
