Critic Reviews for Beijing Flickers

Mr. Zhang, whose wide-screen compositions have an unfussy elegance, mostly manages his balancing act. His measured style gives the film a steady-as-she-goes ballast even as it follows impulsive, unsettled lives.

Zhang's message is universal: whether in Beijing, London or Edinburgh, one should turn to friends in times of adversity.
