Beijing Bicycle


China 2000, 113 minutes
Dir. Wang Xiaoshuai
In Mandarin with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: Set in the milieu of urban cycle-couriers, this retells De Sica’s BICYCLE THIEF on the teeming streets of Beijing where country-boy Lin Cui has his bike lifted on the job. Also juxtaposing the story of the bike’s receiver Bin Li, who finds it brings added social status, this is dramatically slight, but offers a an interesting insight into contemporary China.
