Review by Library Journal Review

Three generations of a middle-class Taiwanese family living in modern Taipei have their personal problems-failing business, lost love, endangered health, and more-to deal with in Edward Yang's nicely observed slice-of-life drama. Filmed with a static camera and edited in an unhurried rhythm, this intimate story unfolds over the course of a year that begins with a wedding and ends with a funeral. The director and a film critic offer insightful commentary on this contemporary classic. For all collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
