Yi Yi (A One and A Two)
Cert: 15 Year: 2000 Length: 173 mins Language: Taiwanese/Mandarin/English
A multi-prizewinning film whose rich, complex plot reveals strands interwoven with poetic precision. The characters - family, neighbours, business associates, friends - are depicted (like their country) as positive, anxious, prosperous, insecure, and treated with deep humanism and touching humour. Do see it: it's a life-enhancing experience.
"Only rarely is a film this tender and observant about the ups and downs of daily existence" Roger Ebert
Intricately nuanced, lovingly crafted ... and decidedly wry in tone.
David Wood, BBC Online
As rich and complex as a terrific novel, and you'll fall into the story just like you fall into a good book. Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
A magnificently acted, deeply affecting movie. There will not be many better this year Philip French, Observer.
