Five Favourite Films with Ang Lee
The Oscar-winner explains his picks.
"It's one of the greatest, if not the greatest family drama in my opinion. It's very Eastern, which really grabbed my heart. Everything is very peaceful, nothing too dramatic, but at the end it really gives you the bite that somehow life is disappointing. I love that theme. It shows a very subtle change in life but by being subtle he shows the essence of live, which is change. Nothing will stand still and the only thing that will never change is the principle that things will change. In a very subdued way, it really transmitted that idea to me. It's very lifelike."
