Yi Yi (Chinese: 一一; pinyin: Yī Yī; lit. 'one one') is a 2000 Taiwanese drama 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 three generations of his middle-class Taiwanese family who reside in Taipei.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 2000s.
