Yi Yi ★★★★½

Warm and wonderful.

I really liked this exchange between Fatty and Ting-Ting:

“My uncle says ‘we live three times as long since man invented movies.’”

“How can that be?”

“It means movies give us twice what we get from daily life. For example, murder. We never killed anyone, but we all know what it’s like to kill. That’s what we get from the movies.”

“What good is it to me? If life’s so horrible, why live it at all? If we’re nice to people, they’ll be nice back. Who needs to kill anybody?”
