Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: YI YI

September 8, 2022

Yi Yi: A One and a Two… (Edward Yang, 2000, 173 mins)
Edward Yang’s final film—and his masterpiece—deftly details the heartbreak and humor faced by three generations of a middle-class family in Taipei. The exquisitely orchestrated ensemble drama won Yang the Best Director prize at Cannes, and led Roger Ebert to remark, “Only rarely is a film this observant and tender about the ups and downs of daily existence.” In Mandarin with English subtitles35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
