Synopsis

Breaking box office records in China, HIFF is proud to present BEIJING LOVE STORY.  Different generations look at love, romance and commitment, all from a uniquely Beijing perspective; a pregnant woman must choose between her husband and an ex-love who comes back into her life, a couple looks toward a trip to Greece to confront their own infidelity, and a young couple must decide whether to listen to their parents' reason or their emotional heart. In the spirit of CRASH and PARIS JE T'AIME, BEIJING LOVE STORY seeks to show how intertwined we truly are, regardless of city or culture.
