Driverless is about three love stories that are intertwined by a car accident.

Driverless is a 2010 Chinese romance film directed by Zhang Yang and starring Liu Ye, Ruby Lin, Gao Yuanyuan, Li Xiaoran, Chen Jianbin and Wang Luodan. Director Zhang Yang says that this movie is an updated version of his 1997 film “Spicy Love Soup”, and it presents love stories set in our current “material era.” It is composed of three separate stories in modern society. The complicated relationships of the main characters in each story present “not beautiful but real life.”

Plot

Driverless is about three love stories that are intertwined by a car accident.

It deals with several relationship issues: the seven year itch, reuniting with a first love, one night stands, May–December romances, and extramarital affairs.

The director hoped to present love stories set in our current “materialistic era”, and force audiences to consider what the standard is to measure love. “Should we be loyal to money, material things or our own hearts?”

Beijing, the present day. Struggling entrepreneur Zhixiong (Liu Ye) meets his first love Xiao Yun (Gao Yuanyuan) after a gap of 10 years when both are rival bidders for a contract; they have a one-night stand, and Zhixiong considers divorcing his wife Changqing (Li Xiaoran), but Xiao Yun is also in another relationship. Lonely deaf-mute teenager Li Xin (May Wang) spies on a womanising car racer, Lijia (Huang Xuan), and then starts spending time with him; each sees in the other something lacking in their own life.

Chauffeur Wang Yao (Chen Jianbin), who needs a large amount of money to pay for his wife’s injuries in a car crash, meets wealthy businesswoman Wang Dan (Ruby Lin) by chance; she helps restore his self-confidence and invites him to invest in some shares which have been hotly tipped by another friend, Guo (You Yong), who saved her from suicide after a failed relationship. Over the course of time, these people’s lives intersect and hidden connections are revealed. [wikipedia]
