There is definitely a specific and intimate style with which this film was shot that makes it intriguing and involving. Edward Yang uses naturalistic and overlapping dialogue to capture the intersecting lives of a Taiwanese family that manage to capture very small and nuanced moments of real emotion. He parallels this by also shooting the film in a very static style; often, the camera stays fixed on a single shot while the characters move in and out of frame. Often very beautiful and poignant.

One of the finest movies of the new century, Yi Yi is Edward Yang's masterpiece about human relations, and how differents decades mix in this convultioned way of living. Very personal, very intimate, Yang directs in a marvelous way, actors that give incredible performances. Very similar to Tokio monogatari. A must see of modern cinema, a referent for filmmakers.
