Film Buff, not a Birthday Buff.
My introduction to Edward Yang and boy have I been missing out.
Probably the most perfect movie about human beings I have ever seen.
This film is so genuine and raw, I feel like every shot could be analyzed for hours upon hours. Yang put so much care into his characters, the understated performances hit a nerve, emotionally for me. He and the actors just knew how to portray difficult feelings on the screen and I can't stress enough how marveled I was seeing this.
A true masterpiece.
