    Excellent, like most of Edward Yang’s films. (Yi Yi, for example, is a masterpiece.)
    I am wondering why they are so difficult to find.
    Thank you for making such rare films finally available.

    thank you so much for doing this. now, only Yang’s first made-for-tv film is left. though most anthology films suck, this is the best i’ve ever seen. incredible concept.
