YI YI

  • ANGELIKA FILM CENTER - DALLAS 5321 East Mockingbird Lane Dallas, TX, 75206 United States (map)

SYNOPSIS: The extraordinary, internationally embraced YI YI, directed by the late Taiwanese master Edward Yang, follows a middle-class family in Taipei over the course of one year, beginning with a wedding and ending with a funeral. Whether chronicling middle-age father NJ’s tentative flirtations with an old flame or precocious young son Yang-Yang’s attempts at capturing reality with his beloved camera, the filmmaker deftly imbues every gorgeous frame with a compassionate clarity. Warm, sprawling, and dazzling, this intimate epic is one of the undisputed masterworks of the new century.  It confirmed Yang’s reputation as one of cinema’s finest filmmakers.
