Beijing Bicycle (Xiaoshuai Wang, 2001)

Beijing BicycleGood film. One of those films you need to think about. It explores the pain and injustice in modern Chinese society through the extraordinary steps two individuals take to own the same bicycle. It's poignant in how critical the bike is to each of them. And like almost every Chinese film I know, it ends tragically.  Subtitles in English but there isn't much dialogue. Excellent cinematography. Only recommended if you're enjoy world cinema.
