Short But Sweet
Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom, or in English, My Name is Yu Ming, is a short film about a bored Chinese shopkeeper who randomly puts his finger on a twirling desktop Globe and decides to move to Dublin. His research shows that Ireland’s native language is Gaelic, so he spends six months learning the language.
Kevin Cullen says: Perhaps the best film made about Ireland in recent years, capturing it in all its post-Celtic Tiger contradictions. The film packs in 13 minutes the humor and the sadness of what is increasingly an Ireland distancing itself from a lot that is good about it.
