Interesting that you state:
"Rarely have I seen a movie so irreversibly damaged by its own gimmicky structure; one wonders why writer/director Simone North felt the need to tell the story in the manner that she did."
In fact she didn't. The film is involved in an ongoing dispute, because it was re-cut without her knowledge....see here: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/iamyou
I hope there will be a chance to see I AM YOU.
