Beijing Flickers is a 2012 Chinese film by Zhang Yuan. It premiered on September 11, 2012 at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.


San Bao hasn’t spoken in 127 days, not since his girlfriend left him for a much richer man, his dog ran away, and he lost both his job and his apartment. Faced with all these failures, he tries to kill himself, and even fails at that. Meanwhile, Wang Ming drives expensive cars and worries his actress girlfriend will leave him, too. Youzi’s roommate is given to a Big Boss by her own rich-guy boyfriend, leaving Youzi alone. Together they and others form a community of outcasts, left behind by prosperity, and reminded of it every day.
