    Drive My Car


    I am all too familiar with the idea of taking a back seat to my own life. It is not necessarily because I am satisfied with my situation or the status of my relationships with the people in my life; it is because I am fearful of altering what has become familiar to me.

    We all long for a special connection that magically makes the familiar parts of life feel fresh again.

    One of the most beautiful qualities that cinema possesses is its ability to resonate with people worldwide regardless of a film's setting. Movies can provide insight into specific cultures and ways of life while also revealing that most of us, irrespective of where we are placed in the world, are much more similar than we are different.Yi Yi follows the Jian family, who live in Taipei, but many of the characters' troubles and concerns are experienced universally.
