Yi Yi








Director - Edward Yang

Genre - Drama


The late Edward Yang's masterpiece. The beauty of it isn't in the way it's shot or how the acting was so great. What really stood out in this film is the masterful direction of Yang. It is paced like a slow uneventful day but underneath this serene existence, you always get the feeling that there's more going on. A celebration of life and the things that we often take for granted, it speaks to us like a message from God.

5 STARS!
