I Love Beijing - Xiari Nuanyangyang

Ying NingChina – 2001

Dezi is a young restless taxi driver. His work brings him into contact with people whose lifestyles go far beyond his intellectual horizon, which is not true of his female acquaintances. The film follows him on his tours throughout Beijing. He is always on the move, people and places come into his life and leave it again.

Ning Ying's new film effortlessly mixes the familiar and the unknown. More
