Yi Yi

Edward Yang 2000

Yi Yi means “and a one and a two . . .”, as in, and a one and a two, and . . . AND??? Fair question. The film’s ambition – to do a lot with a little – might be its biggest conceit. I know this was made like five years before LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (which I’ve never seen, incidentally, on principle), but it has some of that same vomit inducing precociousness thats so prevalent in modern “indie” filmmaking (see also, ONCE) (don’t, actually). I did however like the the little tyke’s photographs, which were equally guilty of preciousness, but WTF can I do, I liked them.
