十七岁的农村少年阿贵(崔林)在北京找到一份送快递的工作,因为得到许诺,当他赚到六百块时可以拥有公司暂借他用的银色变速越野车,他每日工作都很勤恳,可是就在梦想即将成真时,单车丢了,阿贵陷入绝望。 小坚(李滨)是和阿贵同岁的北京少年,但因家庭的贫困,他在维系骄傲时又常自卑。 父亲屡次三番将许下他一辆单车的承诺食言后,小坚为在同伴面前挣面子和泡马子(高园园),从家里偷来钱买了一辆二手车,不想此车正是阿贵所丢。阿贵发现他赖以生存的单车被小坚“盗”去后,开始不计代价拼命讨回,两个少年为守护自己的简单梦想发生争斗。

In this social drama by noted Sixth Generation filmmaker Wang Xiaoshuai, teenager Guei moves to Beijing from the countryside and finds work as a bicycle messenger. The bike he relies upon for his livelihood is stolen and winds up in the hands of Jian, a schoolboy who steals money to buy it secondhand so he can impress a girl. Wang uses their intersecting stories to dramatize emerging class divisions in China, creating a vivid portrait of a city in flux through a beautifully crafted tale of innocence lost. “Beijing Bicycle is at once somber and mysterious, comical and sad. It shows just how lonely a crowded city can be” (A.O. Scott, New York Times). (China, 2001, 113 min., 35mm, Mandarin with English subtitles)

A joint presentation with the Freer Sackler Museums of Asian Art in celebration of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival’s focus on China and Kenya
