Description by Wikipedia

Yi Yi (Chinese: 一一; pinyin: Yī Yī; literally: "one one") is a Taiwanese/Japanese film written and directed by Edward Yang. The film's theme centers around the emotional struggles of an engineer named NJ (played by Wu Nien-jen) and the lives of his middle-class Taiwanese family in Taipei (seen through three generations).

The title in Chinese means "one by one" (meaning "one after another"). When written in vertical alignment, the two strokes resemble the character for "two": (二).

Yi Yi premiered at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, where Yang won the Best Director Award. It is now generally regarded as one of the major films of the 21st century.
