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 subtitles.
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
