yes, yes, yes

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Death is the dominant motif in YES, YES, YES, which deals with the diagnosis of a terminal illness of family matriarch Sayuri. Despite this, director Akihiko YANO has succeeded in making a film that, above all, is about life – staged in bleak black-and-white photography that shines its light on the impressive and moving performances of the actors and actresses.
