  • Movie

Taiwanese writer-director Edward Yang follows a family through one wedding and a funeral in Yi Yi, a lyric portrait of everyday life, a prizewinner at Cannes in 2000. EXTRAS Criterion spices up this cineast’s feast with a high-definition digital transfer and a remastered soundtrack — a perfect complement to the movie’s sumptuous visuals. Audio commentary by Yang and film critic Tony Rayns covers the process from script to editing, and Rayns contributes an engaging lecture-style featurette on Yang’s groundbreaking body of work within the context of Taiwan’s cinema history.
