Details

The extraordinary, internationally embraced Yi Yi (A One and a Two . . .), directed by the late Taiwanese master Edward Yang, follows a middle-class family in Taipei over the course of one year, beginning with a wedding and ending with a funeral.

Warm, sprawling, and dazzling, this intimate epic is one of the undisputed masterworks of the new century.
