San Francisco Chronicle
Wise, delicate and impeccably performed, Yi Yi is a three- hour drama that looks at one middle-class family in transition -- and does so with such a kind and probing eye that we all see our lives reflected through Yang's lens.

Yang favors a gentle and introspective style that shows how deep and strong everyday emotions can run. A memorable treat.
